Project Overview

On 10 November 2020, the State Government announced an additional $25 million in funding over two years for the Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride, bringing total funding for the project to $33 million.

The aim of the project is to meet demand for Park ‘n’ Ride commuters and to increase public transport usage.

The existing Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride is located on The Grove Way and currently contains 177 ground-level, off-street parking spaces for commuters accessing O-Bahn bus services.

The new Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride will comprise three levels of parking (ground floor plus two upper levels) and when complete will provide 450 car parking spaces, which will include ten Disability Discrimination Act 1992, compliant car parks and provision for secure bicycle storage. The new Park ‘n’ Ride will be constructed on the site of the existing car park and its surrounds.

Works commencing 17 February 2021

Works for the Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride Project are planned to commence Wednesday 17 February 2021, with project completion expected in early 2022, weather permitting.

Travel and temporary car parking

From 17 February 2021, access to the existing Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride will be closed to the public for the duration of construction. During February 2021, and March 2021, alternative temporary parking will be available at the Tea Tree Plaza Interchange Park ‘n’ Ride, located on Smart Road, Modbury.

How long will the Golden Grove car park be unavailable?

The new permanent 3-level car park will be opened in early 2022.

When will the temporary car park be open?

The temporary car park located near the current Golden Grove car park is expected to be ready for use in April 2021.

Bus services

Bus stop 62A on the west side of The Grove Way, will be relocated 50 metres north of its current location. No other changes to bus services are anticipated, at this stage, as a result of the works.

Vegetation removal

The removal of vegetation is an unfortunate consequence of infrastructure projects, and all efforts are continuously made to reduce impacts, where practically possible. These impacts are managed in accordance with legislative requirements. Any required tree removals will be offset in accordance with the Department for Infrastructure and Transport’s Vegetation Removal Policy.

The project provides the opportunity to improve upon the existing amenity through the provision of new landscaping. The landscape design and final species palate will be finalised during detailed design, and will seek to improve biodiversity to the project by careful selection of trees and shrubs that are self-sustaining to avoid ongoing irrigation or regular replanting.

Works

Other works being undertaken in February and March 2021 include:

  • closure of the existing car park and erection of temporary fencing;
  • disconnection of services;
  • demolition, including removal of light poles; and
  • vegetation removal.
