Emu Plains Commuter Car Park

Reviewed

Project overview

Transport for NSW will be delivering additional commuter parking at Emu Plains Station, a joint initiative of the Australian and NSW Governments.

The project is part of the NSW Government’s Commuter Car Park Program, providing you with more convenient access to public transport at key interchanges and helping to ease congestion on our roads.

Construction of approximately 750 additional commuter parking spaces is temporarily paused following the discovery of a number of Aboriginal heritage items on site. A formal process is underway in consultation with Registered Aboriginal Parties, on the careful management of these items.

Key benefits

  • a new commuter car park with up to 750 additional spaces located on vacant land to the west of Emu Plains Station, off Old Bathurst Road
  • additional accessible parking spaces and motorcycle parking bays
  • a new footbridge over Old Bathurst Road to provide safe and direct pedestrian access between the new car park and the station
  • a new roundabout at the intersection of Old Bathurst Road and Smith Street to allow vehicle entry and exit into the car park
  • landscaping including a vegetated drainage channel through the car park
  • Transport Park&Ride infrastructure (Opal operated boom gates)
  • provision for future electric vehicle charging spaces
  • CCTV, lighting and wayfinding signage for improved safety and security.

Project update

Earlier this year additional Aboriginal Heritage items were discovered on site during field surveys as part of the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Assessment undertaken for the project. Additional field work has now been completed with Registered Aboriginal Parties and approval has been granted for the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage assessment. 

Construction work on the car park, new pedestrian footbridge and new roundabout are now underway.

Temporary pedestrian and cycle path closure

The pedestrian and cycle path along the eastern side of Old Bathurst Road through the rail underpass is planned to be temporarily closed from 22 November for up to four weeks. 

The closure is necessary to undertake work required for the new footbridge. An accessible alternative route will be available via the station footbridge. Directional signage will be in place.
