Over the past few months there has been a significant increase in complaints to my office about the lack of commuter car parking at Carseldine Train Station, where an overflow of commuters are parking along Beams Road and impacting the surrounding streets.
As ‘Park n Ride’ facilities are constructed and maintained by the State Government, unfortunately this is outside of Council’s jurisdiction. However, to address this problem, I am petitioning the State Government to take action and provide additional ‘Park n Ride’ facilities for Carseldine Train Station.
The provision of more commuter parking will not only encourage people to commute via train and reduce the number of cars on our roads, it will also provide safer parking opportunities for commuters and alleviate congestion in surrounding residential streets.
