COMMUTERS from Granville will get a new $14 million transport interchange in the state budget, the government has announced.
Premier Barry O’Farrell said the interchange at Granville train station would include 40 additional car spaces, a major hub for bus services, passenger lifts and toilets.
The redevelopment will be part of a $170m project that will upgrade or build interchanges at nine locations around Sydney.
“This will deliver real benefits for commuters and help ease traffic congestion on major roads,” Mr O’Farrell said.
“One of the common complaints I hear from commuters is the lack of parking at train stations,” Mr O’Farrell said.
‘‘These brand new projects will make a real difference to the people who use public transport every day and make it a more attractive option for those who don’t.’’
