Council is partnering with the Australian Government to deliver a new multi-level commuter car park on Council-owned land adjacent to Kananook Railway Station and the Frankston Basketball Stadium.

Throughout 2021 Council developed a suitable opportunity with an $18 million Australian Government funding commitment that will see over 300 commuter car spaces delivered on Council-owned land by 2024.

Amongst the clear benefits to commuters across the Frankston City and Mornington Peninsula regions, the project will create 111 jobs providing over $8.9 million in wages and salaries, delivering $53.464 million in economic output while boosting the local economy by $17.295 million.

Located within close proximity to major arterial roads, pedestrian and cycling facilities, residential housing, a commercial precinct and catering to nearby recreation users, the Kananook Commuter Car Park includes:

  • Over 300 new free commuter car spaces, which can also be utilised by recreation users outside of peak commute hours
  • Dedicated bicycle parking within a safe and welcoming lobby area
  • Clear and safe vehicle and pedestrian access points
  • Connection improvements including landscaping and lighting to Kananook Railway Station and Frankston Basketball Stadium
  • Futureproofing for additional level should an increase in car parking be needed
