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