The Granville commuter car park and interchange project is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $770 million Transport Access Program, an initiative to deliver modern, safe and accessible transport infrastructure where it is needed most.

Ms Berejiklian said construction has now kicked off on the project, with the upgrade to deliver significant benefits for local residents.

“Granville customers will benefit from around 60 new parking spaces in a new commuter car park on Mary Street and a planned extension to the existing car park at the corner of Rowell and Cowper streets,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“We have listened to customers and parking was one of the major issues that we heard from the community. This is again another great example of the way the NSW Government is getting on with the job and delivering on its promises.”

“We are delighted the Opal card is now available at Granville and surrounding stations, and there are more than 70 Waratah trains on the network for our customers to jump on board,” Mr Issa said.

“The Opal card is now available across the entire Sydney Trains and NSW TrainLink intercity networks.”

Ms Berejiklian said the Granville interchange project is just one of a number of improvements being delivered for Western Sydney customers.

“Customers are already benefiting from improvements at Windsor, Auburn, Campsie, Strathfield, Glenbrook, Mount Druitt and Kingswood stations,” Ms Berejiklian said.

Upgrades are also currently underway at Fairfield, Riverstone, Clarendon and Canley Vale stations, with projects planned at Bankstown, Padstow and Ingleburn stations.
