A number of short stories we’ve collated in parking and transportation from around Australia over the past few weeks.
Adelaide Airport has opened a new multi-level short term car park, providing customers with more efficient parking and a weather-proof link to the terminal. According to Impact Pub, the new short term car park is more than double the size of the old car park and features a state-of-the-art parking guidance system with red and green lights indicating the location of available parking bays as well as highly visible column signage. We recently visited the newly opened venue and attach a few photos at the bottom of this article.
On the Sunshine Coast, the local council has knocked back a call for help in combating illegal parking on private property, claiming that they do not have the resources to regulate private property. According to the Sunshine Coast Daily, the Queensland Strata Community wrote to the council asking for parking inspectors to be given the right to fine motorists who parked illegally in private strata communities. A council spokeswoman said the purpose of parking regulations was to use "limited resources" to keep traffic flowing, create safe roads for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians and to provide a fair and regular turnover of car parking in public areas.
And finally, in the west, a new bus interchange will be built as part of an $80 million park and ride station in Perth’s southern suburbs. According to Trader Business Media, the Aubin Grove train station will include 2,000 car bays, and has been prioritised to service the rapidly growing southern suburbs. It is hoped that the park and ride facility will redistribute parking demand and create a more balanced transport network in Perth.
