MORE than 1000 railway station car parking spaces reserved for RailCorp staff will be given back to commuters, as part of the state government’s latest rail reform measures.
The move comes after an audit found that staff who had left the organisation were still using their keys to access the secure car parking.
It’s the latest in a series of rail reform measures introduced by Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian, who announced in 2012 that she would axe 20 per cent of the rail system’s middle management — or 750 jobs — in the first tranche of a reform process.
The first stage of the rollout will see more than 370 staff car spaces repossessed at carparks surrounding stations as soon as next week, including 84 in Blacktown, 77 in Penrith, 56 at Liverpool and 26 at Gosford.
Hundreds more will also be claimed back in coming months as the department finalises its review process.

“This is a victory for common sense,” Ms Berejiklian said. “For too long, one of the biggest complaints of customers has been the availability of parking at train stations, and today we are showing that the government is listening, and working hard to improve journeys for public transport customers.
