In a major win for commuters and local residents in Riverwood, Member for Oatley, Mark Coure officially opened the Riverwood Commuter car park on Thursday 8 June 2023.
Riverwood locals now have access to an additional 142 parking spaces to help ease congestion and improve access to Riverwood train station.
“After many years of advocacy from local residents I am thrilled to see this transformational project come to fruition,” Mr Coure said.
“Over 830 workers spent a total of 81,454 hours completing this project which will keep cars off our local streets and free up more parking in-and-around Riverwood.”
“With 5 levels of parking, opal card operated boom gates, rooftop solar panels, lift access and provisions for electric vehicle charging points, we are bringing convenience and comfort to Riverwood.”
“I want to thank the community for their patience during the construction phase, and encourage everyone to come on down and check out this amazing new piece of local infrastructure delivered by the previous Liberals and Nationals Government.”
Parking in the car park will be free to all commuters with Transport Park&Ride boom gates to be installed shortly, providing up to 18 hours of free parking each day.
All that is required is to complete a public transport journey by tapping on and off using an accepted Opal card or contactless credit/debit card linked to a Transport Connect Account.
