More than 120 new car spots are now available in Penrith, with the completion of the Mulgoa Road Car Park Upgrade project.
Situated at the Jane Street intersection in Penrith, the project is a collaboration between the NSW Government and Penrith City Council.
“The opening of this upgraded car park is welcomed by our local community and will directly benefit families, local businesses, as well as benefiting the local tennis centre,” State Member for Penrith, Karen McKeown said.
“The new car park can now accommodate more than 120 vehicles and features lighting, security cameras, screening, enhanced landscaping and drainage.
“The NSW Government will continue to work on improving our roads and traffic flow in Penrith with the next phase of the Mulgoa Road upgrade getting underway.
“This upgrade will deliver additional lanes and improved intersections, we are well on the way to alleviating what has been a long-time bottleneck in the heart of Penrith”.
Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen welcomed the news.
“Penrith City Council is pleased to see our car park re-open to the community after being enhanced and expanded in size to significantly increase the number of parking spaces,” she said.
“This partnership saw Council’s land used for the upgrade to Jane Street and Mulgoa/Castlereagh Road intersection for the delivery of vital infrastructure that improves traffic flow along Mulgoa/Castlereagh Road and provides improved connections to our City Centre.
“While we were down parking temporarily during the construction and delivery phase of the new rail bridge and associated roadworks, the reopening of the expanded car park is a win for residents, visitors, and commuters.”
