Res­i­dents, busi­nesses wel­come fore­shore park­ing back­flip

Southern Telegraph - - NEWS - Pierra Wil­lix

City of Rock­ing­ham coun­cil­lors have voted to bring park­ing times back to two hours along the city’s fore­shore.

At last week’s coun­cil meet­ing, amend­ments to timed park­ing re­stric­tions at the Water­front Vil­lage were con­sid­ered af­ter com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion.

The changes mean bays along Rail­way Ter­race will be­come a mix of 30 min­utes and two hours, but the 30-minute re­stric­tions will only ap­ply from noon-6pm. On Rock­ing­ham Beach Road, bays be­tween Rail­way Ter­race and Flin­ders Lane will re­vert to two hours with the ad­di­tion of a five-minute dropoff bay.

City of­fi­cers said the bays would cater to lunch din­ers and those want­ing an ex­tended stay at the fore­shore. De­spite rec­om­men­da­tions for some three-hour bays along this strip be­tween the ze­bra pedes­trian cross­ing and Flin­ders Lane, these did not go ahead.

The bays in Val Street were also ap­proved for two-hour lim­its, in­clud­ing some five-minute bays.
