Carparks full by 5.40am


If you think you are getting up earlier and earlier to secure a park at train stations then you can take some small consolation in the fact that you’re not alone.


Figures from a Department of Transport survey have shown that of the 81 parking bays available to commuters 36 of them were at full capacity by 7.30.


The Joondalup line was worst effected by the car park chaos with all bays, even the pay and display park, full by 8.30am and Joondalup the worst effected with the survey showing it was full by 5.40am.
