It could be a case of new year, new and better regular parking space for some people.

One of Warrnambool’s largest car parking upgrades in years has been completed.

The newly expanded Warrnambool train station carpark provides 179 additional free all day spaces.

The works, which also include new CCTV cameras and lighting upgrades, were funded by the Victorian Government’s Road and Rail Minor Works Program.

Warrnambool City Council Mayor Tony Herbert said that as well as providing a better service to V/Line customers, the upgraded car park will give more choices to all CBD visitors.

“This is the largest single increase to Warrnambool’s parking stocks in quite a while,” he said.

“This site has been identified previously as being an excellent location to provide a large number of new parking spaces, and it’s terrific to see the works completed.

“As the regional capital for more than 120,000 people, Warrnambool has an important role to play as a centre for transport. People using the Warrnambool train service to travel to Melbourne can feel more confident leaving their car parked for extended periods of time.

“With its close proximity to South West TAFE and the planned new library and learning hub, this carpark is great news for students too as well as CBD workers more generally.”

The carpark can be accessed off Merri Street near Gilles Street or at the train station.
