Train customers will soon find it easier to spot a parking space at Gosford and Woy Woy stations with the NSW Government handing back rail staff car parking spaces right across the network.
Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein said earlier in the year the Minister for Transport announced staff car parks would be released to customers. “I’m pleased to say we’ve done our homework and that number is now up to 1,200 at almost 100 stations, including a number of local spaces in our community,” Mr Holstein said. Gosford station will have 56 spaces handed back while Woy Woy station will have 30 spaces handed back.
“That means 86 more spaces for train customers in the Gosford Electorate,” Mr Holstein said. “Some spaces only need gates unlocked or ‘staff only’ signs taken down, while others need some design and capital work to unlock as many spaces as possible”, he said.“These improvements come as customers see a number of other projects delivered or underway on our trains including the completion of the rollout of Opal electronic ticketing on all stations across the Sydney Trains and NSW Trainlink network, and more than 70 brand new Waratah Trains delivered.”
