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 proposed Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride will be two storeys (ground floor plus two upper levels) and will provide over 400 car parking spaces once complete. The new Park ‘n’ Ride will be constructed on the site of the existing car park and its surrounds.
The Department for Infrastructure and Transport has appointed the PTP Alliance to undertake the planning and design, which is underway.
Works are expected to start in the second quarter 2021, with project completion anticipated in early 2022, weather permitting.
