Wyndham City to enforce parking restrictions at train stations

Wyndham City will soon begin regular patrols by parking officers around the Wyndham Vale and Tarneit train stations.

Whilst V/Line is responsible for determining parking restrictions and the installation of signs, our officers will be enforcing these restrictions.

To facilitate a smooth transition and to encourage compliance, Wyndham City and V/Line will be erecting temporary signs to notify commuters of the upcoming enforcement.

During an initial grace period of two weeks, warnings will be issued instead of live infringements.

The enforcement of parking restrictions at these two V/Line locations will commence early next month and is expected to be fully operational before the end of June.

These patrols have been initiated by V/Line as the State Government has now formally gazetted the stations.

Wyndham City’s Director of City Operations, Amanda Smith, emphasised the importance of these measures, stating that collaboration with V/Line has been essential in addressing the parking challenges at these stations.

“Our priority is to ensure parking around the Wyndham Vale and Tarneit train stations is orderly and accessible and by enforcing these regulations, we aim to enhance the commuting experience for everyone,” she said.

“Our aim is not just to enforce the rules but to educate the public and promote long-term compliance.”

Parking will also be enforced on public roads around the train station, including parking too close to intersections and solid white lines, as well as vehicles being parked facing the wrong direction.

Drivers are also reminded that double parking, stopping in a no-standing zone and parking on nature strips is also illegal and dangerous.
