The commuter parking spot at Kellyville’s Riley T-way will be moved. 

The notoriously crowded commuter parking spot will be moved to the new Kellyville Station car park on the northern side of Samantha Riley Drive from Monday (November 13). 

The changes are prompted by the beginning of construction to remove the roundabout and install traffic lights on Samantha Riley Drive. 

A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the new Kellyville station will have 1360 car spaces when metro rail services start in 2019.

“Currently 400 commuter car spaces service the Riley T-way at Kellyville,” the spokesperson said. 

“Those 400 spaces will soon be provided over two adjacent locations as construction on the new metro station and multi-storey car park continues.”

The spot has previously come under fire due to the lack of parking, prompting commuters to park illegally or dangerously in the car park. 

Most commuter parking, including 12 accessible car spaces, will be available at the new northern car park. 

The kiss-and-ride spaces remain in the southern Riley T-Way car park.

The Transport for NSW spokesperson said the changes were part of plans for the Sydney Metro Northwest project.

“Commuters have been notified of the changes and are encouraged to allow extra time and follow signs and instructions from traffic controllers,” the spokesperson said. 

Motorists driving west will not be able to turn right into the northern car park from Samantha Riley Drive.
