Coomera train station, upgrade park 'n' ride

The park 'n' ride at Coomera train station is being upgraded.

Commuters will soon see works progressing on increasing the park 'n' ride capacity at Coomera's train station's rail and bus interchange. More than 500 parking spaces are being added by expanding on 2 new sites east and northwest of the station, and by reconfiguring 2 of the existing car parks. From early January 2022, work is taking place progressively, opening newly constructed spaces before proceeding to the next stage to minimise impact on commuters. All work is scheduled for completion in December 2022.
