I am proud to announce that work will begin in the next few weeks on a new car park for shoppers and businesses in Cabramatta.
The current ground-level car park at the corner of Hughes Street and Dutton Lane will be transformed into a 220-space multistorey car park – adding much-needed car parking in this popular town centre.
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. This is in addition to the 2,977 car parking spaces already available in Cabramatta.
The new car park will connect to the existing Dutton Lane car parks, and will include a new lift.
The Dutton Lane precinct currently provides parking for 1.1 million visitors per year. This new car park will provide for an extra 350,000 visitations to the Cabramatta town centre per year. This supports local businesses and provides better amenity for shoppers.
With more than 1,000 free off-street car parking spaces provided by Council in the Cabramatta town centre, in addition to the 1,600 free on-street spaces nearby, Council continues to support the economic health and vibrancy of the town centre.
This car park is a big win for the businesses, shoppers and residents of Cabramatta who have all told us that they want convenient access to parking in the Cabramatta town centre so they can get on with their daily lives with minimal fuss.
It also supports Cabramatta’s growing reputation as a must-visit destination for all of Sydney. It is the epicentre of Vietnamese and Asian dining, shopping and culture.
The construction means there will be some changes to access and traffic in the Dutton Lane precinct and the current outdoor car park will be closed. Alternative car parking is available in the Dutton Lane, John Street, Hill Street and Fisher Street car parks.
Drivers using the car parks or the Dutton Lane loop may need to exit onto Hill Street instead of Hughes Street. Please follow the signage and directions from staff.
We are committed to providing support for residents and businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes continuing with the development of important infrastructure projects around the City. These projects not only strengthen the City’s reputation as a great place to live, work and raise a family; they also provide important employment opportunities.
I look forward to opening this and other projects to the community over the coming months.
