Push to ease parking pain

Park pledge: Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and Dunkley MP Chris Crewther campaigning in Dunkley.

TRAIN station parking was the target of the Liberal’s campaign in Dunkley last week, with MP Chris Crewther announcing $38.5 million in “budgeted” funding to go towards adding parking at Frankston, Seaford, and Kananook stations.

“This funding includes $38.5 million towards a $56 million project to build parking upgrades for Frankston, Kananook and Seaford stations with Frankston to get 600 new spaces, including 100 short term parking spots, and Seaford and Kananook getting 100 new spaces each,” Mr Crethwer said.

“These 800 new car parks will take cars off the road and help our locals get home quicker to spend more time with their families.”

Mr Crewther said the remaining funding for the “$56 million project” was a “budgeted amount the state government have already put towards Frankston commuter car parking.”

“Funding is budgeted, so we’ll just have to work with council and state government on exact sites plans, designs and build. The start date will depends on the willingness of council and or the state government to push along the projects as owners of the site and or co-funders.”
