Light rail parking recovery

The State Government is currently constructing light rail in Randwick City. While light rail will bring many long-term benefits, it will also result in the removal of an estimated 700-750 onstreet parking spaces. These are parking spaces used by local residents and shoppers.

To help reduce the parking loss, Randwick City Council is implementing a light rail support plan which is about creating more parking and also changing existing parking time limits to better assist residents and businesses.

Parking time limit changes

Construction on the light rail project is proceeding along Anzac Parade. This work will result in the permanent loss of Anzac Parade parking from Kensington to Kingsford.

To help manage parking demand fairly to meet the needs of businesses and residents, Randwick City Council is implementing changes in the following streets:

Parking recovery plan

Council is increasing parking near the light rail by changing parking from parallel to angle parking. This will increase parking supply.

We have identified 21 streets where it's possible to create more than 400 new onstreet parking spaces. $10.5M has been allocated to the Parking Recovery Plan which is part of Council's broader Light Rail Support Plan.

We are planning to implement the parking changes at the same times as the light rail construction to minimise the parking loss.

We are progressively writing to nearby residents and property owners to inform you of the proposed changes and to invite you to view the plans.

UPCOMING PARKING RECOVERY PLANS

CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEW:

  • Abbotford St Kensington
  • Wallace St, Kingsford

  • More parking created on William St, Randwick as part of light rail parking recovery plan

    about 1 year ago

    Parking on William St, Randwick will be changed from parallel to angle parking on Wednesday, 17 February 2016 creating 18 additional parking spaces as part of Randwick City Council’s parking recovery plan.

    The changes are part of an ongoing plan by the Council to create more onstreet parking spaces in areas close to the light rail route where parking is being removed because of construction of light rail.

    Council consulted with local residents about the proposed changes in December and January with residents broadly supporting the changes saying parking was already difficult in the area.

    The work will take place on Wednesday 17 February 2016 from 7pm to 11.30pm. At a later date, new islands and planting areas will be installed at the intersections.

    Transport for NSW has this week commenced light rail construction works on nearby Alison Rd resulting in the removal of some parking along Alison Rd.

    For further information about the project contact Council’s Transport Engineer Darren Price on 1300 722 542 or email council@randwick.nsw.gov.au
