Hughes Street Car Park

The construction of a brand new multi-deck car park at the corner of Hughes Street and Dutton Lane, Cabramatta, will commence soon. 

The new 220-space car park will connect to the existing multi-deck car park with access to a new lift and pedestrian connection to the Dutton Plaza lifts.

The existing Hughes Street car park will close with a date yet to be determined. Alternative car parking will be available in the Dutton Lane, John Street, Hill Street and Fisher Street car parks.

Temporary changes will be made to traffic flow in Dutton Lane. All drivers using the car parks or the Dutton Lane loop will be able to exit onto Hughes Street between 11am and 3pm. Drivers will be required to exit onto Hill Street at all other times.

There will also be changes to traffic flow within the Dutton Lane car parks. Motorists are asked to follow all signage and the direction of staff. Signage will be displayed throughout the car park and Dutton Lane advising motorists of the changes.

The new car park will include bicycle and motorcycle parking in addition to the car parking, bringing the total number of parking spaces in the Dutton Lane precinct to 992. The car park will feature rainwater harvesting and solar energy collection, motorcycle and bicycle parking, and electric car charging bays.

The new car park and adjoining car parks will receive an eye-pleasing façade, with tasteful coloured panels and bamboo planters adding to the vibrancy of the Cabramatta town centre.

Improvements to the information signs are planned with advice for motorists on available parking brought forward to the Hughes Street frontage for the convenience of drivers.

With more than 1,300 off-street car parking spaces provided by Council in the Cabramatta town centre, in addition to the 1,600 on-street spaces nearby, Council continues to support the economic health and ongoing vibrancy of the town centre.

The current Dutton Lane precinct has a parking turnover of 1.1 million per year. With the addition of this new car park, Council expects to provide an additional 350,000 parking spaces per year.

All of the car parks in the Dutton Lane precinct will operate under the same timed and paid system – prices starting at $2 for the first two hours.

The new Hughes Street car park is due for completion by the end of 2020.
