The expansion will add 280 extra car parking spaces to the existing 220 car parking spaces in the facility, providing a total of 500 parking spaces on two separate sites upon completion.

The current works are part of the $10-million upgrade of Mango Hill train station, which aims not just to add parking spaces to increase public transport access in the surrounding suburbs, but also to manage parking pressures at nearby stations and local streets.

Aside from the expansion of the facility, works include lighting and CCTV cameras for enhanced visibility and security, landscaping to provide visual amenities, and pedestrian paths to improve connectivity to and from the train station.

It will also feature six accessible parking bays near the train station to improve access to public transport for customers with a disability, as well as access to a relocated kiss ‘n’ ride/taxi zone with the bus facility on Meyers Circuit.

The relocated bus stop will maintain its existing length to cater for four 12.5m-long buses, which will make it safer and more efficient for passenger drop offs. 

Following site establishment works, the main construction works for the upgrade started in June 2022. 

Transport Minister Mark Bailey and Deputy Premier Steven Miles announced that the new facility would open to the public in mid-2023, weather and construction conditions permitting.
