Campbelltown MP Greg Warren has urged new Minister for Transport, Rob Stokes MP, to address the commuter car parking crisis engulfing stations throughout Campbelltown.
Prior to the 2015 election, Gladys Berejiklian – in her capacity as Minister for Transport – promised to construct 450 commuter car parking spaces at Campbelltown Train Station.
However, in November 2018, former Minister for Transport, Andrew Constance, officially broke that promise.
Mr Warren recently submitted a notice of motion in the Parliament of NSW calling on Minister Stokes to:
Acknowledges the promise by former Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, in her capacity as Minister for Transport in 2015, to build 450 extra commuter car parking spaces at Campbelltown Railway Station
Notes in November 2018, the former Minister for Transport, Andrew Constance, officially broke that promise
Recognises the dire lack of commuter parking at all railway stations in Campbelltown
Urges the government to fulfil its promise and build at least 450 new commuter car parking spaces at Campbelltown Railway Station
“It is very difficult to explain the perils of public transport to Liberal MPs who spend their days being chauffeured around Sydney,” Mr Warren said.
“If you are a Campbelltown commuter and you don’t arrive at the station before 7am, it is near impossible to find a parking spot.
“It’s just as difficult at Leumeah and Macarthur stations.
“I have made sure the new Minister for Transport is aware of the issues surrounding commuter car parking in Campbelltown and I have urged that his government once and for all address this crisis.”
