Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Front Page - Aaron Cor­lett

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park has con­firmed park­ing will be avail­able at Bel­mont Park Race­course for events at Op­tus Sta­dium un­til the foot­bridge from East Perth is com­pleted.

Po­ten­tial park­ing so­lu­tions were floated dur­ing a press con­fer­ence last week, when it was an­nounced there would be no crowd cap at the Perth Scorchers BBL semi­fi­nal at the sta­dium.

The Town has sup­ported 500 pre-paid bays be­ing made avail­able, with traf­fic mon­i­tored by the De­part­ment of Trans­port, Main Roads and the coun­cil. If suc­cess­ful, 900 bays will be made avail­able.

The so­lu­tion was tri­alled dur­ing Sun­day’s One Day In­ter­na­tional be­tween Aus­tralia and Eng­land.

A state­ment from the Town con­firmed that McCal­lum Park and Tay­lor Re­serve were put for­ward as a ‘once-off’ op­tion for con­sid­er­a­tion for the BBL fi­nals, which be­gin at 4.40pm and clash with peakhour traf­fic.

Af­ter dis­cus­sions be­tween rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Town, De­part­ment of Trans­port, Main Roads and Venues Live, it was agreed the ini­tia­tives al­ready pro­posed would be suf­fi­cient to sup­port crowds.
