Wyndham City Council says it's desperately needed to reduce congestion on the roads and take the pressure off the current Tarneit station.
It wants the state government to fund the building of the Sayers Road train station in Tarneit to reduce congestion on the City’s roads, and a lack of parking spaces at Tarneit Railway Station.
Wyndham City mayor Josh Gilligan has asked the State Government for Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution (GAIC) funds to be allocated to the project.
“In the 2018/2019 financial year, Wyndham Vale train station experienced a 20 per cent increase in passenger numbers and Tarneit train station saw a 17 per cent increase,” he said.
“To support rail patronage and connection to stations, Wyndham City is looking into the feasibility of a Park and Ride trial from local neighbourhoods to Tarneit train station to address traffic congestion and a lack of parking at the station.”
“The State Government will be delivering an additional 500 spaces at this station, which will help relieve some pressure, but we still need to explore alternative options because these spaces will fill quickly once they are built and as demand returns.”
“We could also look at expanding the Park and Ride service to incorporate the Sayers Road station and other train stations, where alternative connections and sustainable choices are currently limited.”
