Public Transport Victoria is building a new four storey car park at Syndal Station with the nett effect of an additional 250 car spaces by late in 2015. During construction, however, there will be a nett loss of 150 parking spaces with commuters being directed to park in Mt Waverley residential streets between the railway line, Blackburn Road, High Street Road and Lawrence Road. The City of Monash has refused PTV’s request to make temporary use of some of the 250 vacant parking spaces in the Euneva Avenue parking tower adjacent to Glen Waverley Station. http://ptv.vic.gov.au/assets/PDFs/projects/SSMD-Alternative-parking-corflute-FINAL-20141121.pdf
Works started over the weekend of December 6 and 7 with the carpark west of the pedestrian underpass being closed and substantial tree trimming and foliage removal taking place. The wood chipping machines were hard at work at 8.30 on Monday morning.
Others were hard at work over the weekend too. Council staff moved into Price Avenue, Lee Avenue and St Clair Crescent in Mt Waverley and installed new parking restriction signs and no standing signs. Instead of using the available space in the Euneva Avenue car park which is close to Glen Waverley station, council “cooperated with PTV” to make car parking available in the above streets and those further up the hill away from Syndal Station. Commuters now have a long walk and must cross the extremely busy Blackburn Road to catch their trains AND residents, business staff and visitors are unable to park outside their homes and places of work where they’ve parked safely and happily for years.
