Coomera train station, upgrade park 'n' ride

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

The Coomera train station park 'n' ride upgrade will deliver a further 500 spaces (approximately) to the current parking facility, by expanding on 2 new blocks of land, and by reconfiguring 2 of the existing car parks.

The project is entering design phase to refine the concept design presented to the community during business case consultations in January 2021.

Community consultation

Community consultation on the concept design for the Business Case of the upgrade was carried out during January 2021.

Consultation activities involved sending a newsletter to over 52,000 properties and mailboxes in the surrounding area, a Facebook post targeting people in the surrounding area, signage setup at the existing park 'n' ride and an email sent out to people subscribed to the TMR South Coast database. These all gave information to the recipient and asked for feedback via email, phone, mail or Facebook comment. The feedback was then collated and included in the business case report.

If you have any feedback or would like more information about the project contact us during business hours.
