The Northern Illawarra Chamber of Commerce has raised concerns the new rail timetable introduced just last month is jamming carparks in Thirroul and reducing the number of parking spaces available to day shoppers and residents.
Under the timetable morning commuter trains to Sydney leave from hub stations at Wollongong, Thirroul, Helensburgh and Waterfall.
The trains no longer stop at stations like Austinmer and Bulli, leaving smaller commuter carparks there virtually empty.
Northern Illawarra Chamber of Commerce President Pauline Lacelles-Smith is calling on the NSW Government to consult with the community over the changes.
"The government should do something and do it quickly, whether it's changing timetables, so people don't block streets everywhere park on roundabouts and make the roads unsafe," she said.
The Member for Heathcote, Lee Evans, says he is working to address the concerns of northern Illawarra residents over the lack of commuter parking at Thirroul and Helensburgh.
Mr Evans says he has already met with transport minister Gladys Berejiklian to look at what can be done to build more carparks.
