No park­ing prob­lem

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS OPINION -

IN RE­SPONSE to the let­ter by Alan Thorn­ton, re Bud­erim car park.

It is about time that Alan and oth­ers got off the band wagon about not hav­ing enough park­ing in Bud­erim. I have lived in Bud­erim for very nearly 30 years and while the amount of traf­fic in Bud­erim has in­creased, I do not agree that a multi-level car park is needed in Bud­erim.

Go any time dur­ing the day to the town cen­tre and you will find park­ing, whether it be in the main street or the many park­ing spa­ces be­hind busi­nesses like ANZ/West­pac banks, NAB/Sun­corp banks, Bendigo bank and Bank of Queens­land, if you are do­ing busi­ness with them.

Fur­ther more, there is pub­lic park­ing be­hind the post of­fice and the Hub, then if you are shop­ping in the Wool­worths com­plex, you will find a park­ing space.

The piece of land next to the Middy’s shops has been used for park­ing for years, as a school drop-off and no doubt oth­ers park there dur­ing the day.

I have al­ways found park­ing within a short dis­tance of where I want to shop.

In fact, on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 14 at 4pm, there were sev­eral park­ing spa­ces near the banks on both sides of the road.

So stop wing­ing about no park­ing in Bud­erim, it is there if you just look.
