Mango Hill train station, upgrade park 'n' ride
Design is complete to provide around 280 new parking spaces by expanding the park 'n' ride facilities at Mango Hill station.
The new park 'n' ride facility on 2 separate sites will more than double park ‘n’ ride capacity at the station by adding to the 220 existing parking spaces.
The existing informal car park next to the station will be upgraded and a new parking facility will also be created on vacant land adjacent to this.
The project will deliver significant benefits for the local community by improving road safety, road congestion and parking pressures in the surrounding suburbs.
The park 'n' ride upgrade will include changes to the existing kiss 'n' ride facility by swapping the location of the existing bus stop with the kiss 'n' ride/taxi zone on Meyers Circuit. The relocated bus stop will maintain its existing length to cater for four 12.5m-long buses. This will make it safer and more efficient for passenger drop offs.
