Northgate station park 'n' ride business case

We are planning to expand parking facilities at Northgate station in response to high demand for parking in the local area.

Northgate station is a key location for customers accessing the public transport network and experiences high demand for commuter parking.

In late 2021, the department undertook community consultation on a proposed upgrade to replace an existing carpark on Ridge Street and Holland Street with a multi-storey parking facility to provide additional capacity.
