Leppington Station's temporary car park is now open and ready for use.

Camden MP Peter Sidgreaves announced that the temporary car park was open today for public transport customers.

It will provide approximately 250 additional spaces while a new multi-storey car park is being built at the station.

The temporary facility, which was delivered by Camden Council on behalf of Transport for NSW, is located opposite the station on Rickard Road.

"The temporary car park is another step forward in delivering up to 1000 additional parking spaces for public transport customers at Leppington Station as part of the NSW Government's Commuter Car Park Program," Mr Sidgreaves said.

"The temporary facility will be free to use for commuters and will offset the spaces in existing car parks that are temporarily unavailable during construction of the new multi-storey car park.

"Delivering infrastructure like the Leppington Commuter Car Park is complex.

"It requires the state government, local councils, land owners and our local community to work together to achieve the best outcomes for the community."

Site clearing has been completed and piling work is underway on the new multi-storey car park, with construction expected to be completed in mid-2021.

It will feature up to 1000 additional parking spaces, free parking for up to 18 hours for public transport customers, additional accessible parking spaces in the station precinct, lift access, CCTV, motorbike parking and electric vehicle charging spaces.
