Secured car parking for visitors
MT BULLER Mt Stirling Resort Management has responded to increasing pressure on resort car parking facilities for the coming season.
Changes have been made at Mirimbah car parking facilities with introduction of paid parking and boom gates to control that parking space.
A resort management representative said the pressure on resort car parking facilities over recent years has increased significantly resulting in a number of initiatives coming into place for the 2017 snow season.
In order to better accommodate changing visitation patterns, minimise pedestrian and vehicle interaction, and improve connections between public and private transport, changes initiated include:
the creation of additional overnight car parking facilities along Corn Hill Road to accommodate day vehicles in CSIR car park;
improving and better maintaining pedestrian links between car parks and bus services; and
changes to the car parking facilities at Mirimbah including resurfacing, refencing and the installation of access gates (boom gates) to ensure appropriate, adequate and secured parking for those visitors utilising transport services.
A nominal fee per vehicle per day will be applicable for this facility ($8 per day or $48 per week).

READY TO ROLL: The newly installed boom gates at the Mirimbah carpark - no longer free but with an $8 a day charge.
