Syndal Train Station in Glen Waverley is set to receive a $10.8 million upgrade as part of the 2013/2014 Victorian State Budget. The upgrade will include an additional 250 parking spots with a new multi-deck car park, improved lighting, the installation of CCTV cameras as well as enhancements to pedestrian access.
As many commuters who use Syndal Train Station know, car parking fills up fast, leaving many commuters seeking spots in side streets or simply missing out completely. The additional parking will take the number of available spaces to 590 and enable more people to park their car close to the station, making it easier and safer to use public transport.
As part of the $10.8 million project, work will also be completed to ensure the station is well-lit, secure and accessible. Additional lighting, CCTV cameras, minor landscaping and improved pedestrian access are just some of the features to be incorporated in the project.
The car park will be built south of the rail line, at the western end of the existing car park, near the corner of Coleman Parade and Blackburn Road. With preliminary works already in progress, further construction works are expected to commence shortly.
