Lara car park extension underway
Published: Fri 5 Aug 2016
Work is underway to expand the Lara Station car park, which will deliver an additional 200 car park spaces.
The project will increase the number of car parking spaces at Lara Station to more than 550.
The additional spaces will make the station’s car park one of the largest on the V/Line network and the work will involve fully sealing and extending the asphalt on both sides of the existing car park.
The car park upgrade will also include additional lighting, CCTV and will meet accessibility standards.
V/Line recorded more than 289,000 customer trips to and from Lara Station in the last 12 months.
Patronage growth at Lara is among the highest in the V/Line network and the additional car parking spaces will help meet customer demand.
The project is being delivered by Negri Construction and is due for completion later this year.
