Carpark closed to fix tree dam­age

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

A CARPARK on David­son Ter­race in the Joon­dalup city cen­tre will close later this year for an up­grade.

Peo­ple who use P4 park­ing sta­tion have been ad­vised to make al­ter­na­tive ar­range­ments, with works sched­uled to start in late Oc­to­ber and ex­pected to be com­pleted by the end of Novem­ber.

Th­ese works will be to fix sig­nif­i­cant as­phalt dam­age from tree roots, which has re­sulted in the loss of 15 ex­ist­ing park­ing bays within the carpark, while other ar­eas have de­graded be­yond re­pair and need to be re­placed.

The City of Joon­dalup said its ar­borist and park­ing teams had worked to­gether to min­imise the im­pact on the trees and max­imise park­ing.

As many trees as pos­si­ble will be re­tained and new ap­pro­pri­ate species of trees will be planted and given an area to grow to re­duce the fu­ture im­pact on the carpark.

“While the City ac­knowl­edges there may be some in­con­ve­nience for work­ers and vis­i­tors to the City that use this carpark, d487260 the clo­sures are for a rel­a­tively short pe­riod and are nec­es­sary to en­sure th­ese es­sen­tial works can be car­ried out,” Mayor Al­bert Ja­cob said.

Al­ter­na­tive park­ing is avail­able in the nearby Reid Prom­e­nade mul­ti­storey carpark.
