Bondi Beach + major retail + transport hub = commuter congestion.
Waverley Council’s three car parks presented unique challenges that exacerbated traffic, pollution and frustrated customers.
Eastgate carpark has 900 bays over 6 levels. Lack of visibility of spaces created repeated circling to hunt for a parking bay. Consequences of this kind of parking behaviour include poor air quality, higher run-off pollution and more incidents caused by competitive parkers. Hollywood Avenue carpark has 168 bays across two levels but the traffic flow was convoluted. After that certain point on Level 1, if all bays were full, you were forced to exit, circle the block and try again. You had to make a call early if you wanted to try for an available bay on level 2. But there were no guarantees. Fuel and time both wasted countless times daily.
“We intend to reduce greenhouse gases by 30 per cent by 2020. So we know we need to be smart.”
The Right Hon. Sally Betts (June 2014) Lord Mayor of Waverly Council.
