The Marshall Liberal Government has no plans to increase car parking at the Gawler Railway Station, Department of Transport, Planning and Infrastructure (DPTI) officials have told a State Parliamentary Committee.


The DPTI Officials were giving evidence to the Public Works Committee about the electrification of the Gawler train line.


In response to questions raised by Local Member of Parliament, Mr Tony Piccolo, the officials advised the committee that “It [expanding the car park] is not part of the scope of this project but the department is looking at opportunities along the whole rail corridor for future upgrades of park-and-rides.”


Mr Piccolo told the committee that the Gawler Railway Station carpark is already “chock-a-block“ and with electrification likely to increase patronage, more cars would be parking in nearby residential streets.


Mr Piccolo said he was disappointed that the State Liberal Government officials had advised the committee that it had no plans to upgrade the car park with the electrification of the line likely to be completed during 2021.


“The carparking is inadequate, particularly when students are attending university,” said Mr Piccolo.


“Train users been forced to use nearby residential streets, which is not a desirable thing as it denies those residents carparking for their visitors.”


“It is disappointing that the Marshall Liberal government has overlooked, once again, the needs of the people of Gawler.”
