Parking relief in Sunbury takes shape with Multideck Construction
Published on 06 September 2023
Hume City Council is delivering on its commitment to ease parking congestion in Sunbury’s CBD by launching the major construction phase of its new multi-level car park at an event on Tuesday 5 September, 2023.
This marks the next phase in improving conditions for both commuters and users of Sunbury’s Town Centre in the high traffic area following the closure of the existing car park in June, and the completion of preliminary works.
With a total of 400 spaces being created to cater to these competing demands the rapidly growing Sunbury population will have more freedom to choose public transport as a viable transport option, while de-congesting surrounding streets being used as a daily parking option.
While the benefits will be felt by commuters, shoppers and residents alike, we understand the project comes with a period of interruption and thank the community for their patience.
The project is being delivered by Hume City Council and jointly funded with support from the Victorian Government’s Car Parks for Commuters Program, the Victorian Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution, the Australian Government’s Urban Congestion Fund and Hume City Council.
The state-wide Car Parks for Commuters Program has helped deliver 11,000 new and upgraded car parks across Victoria, freeing up local streets and generating jobs across Victoria.
Hume City Council is grateful its work in advocating residents in its growing suburbs is being met with funding contributions at all levels to deliver vital infrastructure that keeps development in line with growth.
