Car park improvements on the way for Fassifern Station


Commuters across Lake Macquarie are set to benefit from an upgraded car park at the popular Fassifern Station.

Work is underway on $520,000 of improvements at the commuter car park, which will provide better access for local commuters.

Lake Macquarie Mayor Kay Fraser said the improved car parking spaces will help to meet the demand for parking at the station and ensure the community can easily access train services.

“While COVID-19 has seen less people commuting as they continue to work from home, transport is crucial to our future as a growing regional City and we want to make it as easy as possible for people to come here and move around the Hunter and beyond,” she said.

“We know that Fassifern is a highly-used station to access our transport network, so it is great that we can work together with Transport for NSW to improve the car park for the benefit of our community.” 

In addition to the car park works, the bus layover at the station is receiving an upgrade, with a new bus shelter also planned.

Residents and commuters can expect minor disruptions while the work is completed in stages, however this will be minimised as much as possible.

Weather permitting, the resurfacing and works on the bus shelter are expected to finish in September.

The upgrade is jointly funded by Lake Macquarie City Council and Transport for NSW.
