Under the Victorian Government’s $150 million Car Parks for Commuters Fund, Werribee station will receive 130 new and upgraded car parking spaces.
Currently around 4500 people use Werribee Station on average each weekday. There are around 650 car parking spaces available now across two formal station car parks.
By 7.30am on weekdays the car parks are often full, forcing commuters to park in local streets or go to another station further up the line.
An informal car park will now be transformed to accommodate the 130 new, formal car parking spaces, including improved safety with better lighting and CCTV, following level crossing removal works in the area.
Work on the new car parking spaces will be completed by the Level Crossing Removal Project and timed to follow level crossing removal works in the area, set for completion by the end of 2022.
Early preparation will commence in January to construct the new road bridge between Tarneit Road and the Princes Highway and remove the dangerous and congested level crossing in Cherry Street.
The Car Parks for Commuters Fund will see more than 11,000 new or upgraded spaces progressively rolled out near metropolitan and regional train stations across the state.
