More free unlimited parking for Lidcombe Carpark

Please help in petitioning the Auburn Council to provide more free unlimited parking areas near the Lidcombe Train Station. In the immediate future, more levels of the Lidcombe Carpark dedicated to unlimited parking would be the simplest method for the Auburn Council. The Lidcombe Train Station is a major junction station on the CityRail network. In order to catch the train at Lidcombe station, many commuters choose to park their cars near the station. There is a free public car parking lot near the train station, Lidcombe Carpark, however, there are insufficient parking spaces to accommodate the growing number of train commuters. This is particularly obvious during weekdays when all of the parking spaces in the unlimited and 6-hour parking areas have been taken before 8.30am. In desperation, cars are often parked illegally on the ramp or have risked getting a fine by parking in the 2-hour or 4-hour car parking levels. Street parking near the station is not an option as it is limited to half an hour at all times. Many people are choosing to travel by train, because of the high cost of fuel, the lack of parking where they work or because of the convenience. Whatever the reason, the increased number of train commuters is resulting in an increased number of people parking near the train station. As such, Auburn Council needs to provide more free unlimited car parking. It is in the best interest of the commuters and also in the best interest of the environment. Train commuters need somewhere to park their cars near the station, so they can remain train commuters, rather than being another car commuter contributing to Sydney’s air pollution. **You can contact the author via the email address "moreparking4lidcombecarpark@hotmail.com".**

Sponsor

Previous to this petition, many people have fought hard with the Auburn Council for more unlimited parking near the Lidcombe Train Station. This petition is sponsored by regular commuters of the Lidcombe Train Station - people who park by the train station in order to use the conveniance of public transport. This petition was begun as a result of the regular fines handed out every day to those who use the Lidcombe Train Station...but whose daily work and lives take them away from the carpark longer than the Auburn Council will allow. Many people park their cars in the morning, before 8am, needing to spend at least 9 hours away from their cars for work or study. The amount of people needing unlimited free parking per day far exceeds the capacity within the current parking structure near the Lidcombe Train Station, as seen by the number of parking fines displayed on cars every afternoon. This petition is sponsored by those regular commuters of the Lidcombe Train Station and Carpark who demand services that meet their needs.
