Parking availability Civic West side?

By Flo - 26 October 2010 30

Does anyone know of any free or reasonably priced all day parking around civic on the west side?

My company has moved to Gould Street Civic.

What’s Your opinion?

If you get to work around 630am, you can park in the disused Beaurepaires in Lonsdale St for free. Just make sure you park close to the entry with your car facing outwards, otherwise you’ll get blocked in til after 4pm.

If you start after 11am, you can park for free on the North side Haig Park in either Henty or Greenway Streets.

city west has plenty of parking but is isn’t cheap. $10.50 or $11.00 around the Lakeside end.

And once the DA is approved the $11.00 one will close – leaving a huge shortage of spaces.

You can walk over the bridge and park at the futsal slab for $6 but that is then a hike to the office area…..

Planning at its best…..

Get a bike or motorbike. Then you can have all the free parking you want.

No.
Try a Action bus, get a 10 ride ticket and pay $2.50 each way. Cheap.

My little treadlie lets me park for free, east west north and south. Every day. Means I spend up to $2400 per annum less than my work colleagues, money freed up for whatever indulgence takes my fancy. Well worth a few minutes pedalling in the morning and afternoon. Did I mention how much I save on pointless gym fees as well? Didn’t I? Gee, i could go on and on but just this once I’ll refrain, and just sit here smug as usual.

We have a guy here at work, he drives in from the Woden area & parks that far away that it takes him 20 minutes to walk it. What would that take? Up to 40 minutes?

I said to him that once his fitness is up he could cyle into work in 30 minutes.

He still drives.

Short answer is no.

Since the morons by the names of Stanhopeless and Barr continue to allow development on all carparks with practically no replacement parking, your options are basically city west multi story or 121 Marcus Clarke, early bird costs about $10-$11 min if you’re lucky to get a park. Otherwise you’re in for a long walk from the other side of the city, although it is still quicker than catching the bus.

How the government expect city west to attract people (visitors and business) when there is nowhere to park and we have a useless bus service is beyond me.. Planning and common sense are things the government clearly don’t have.

It’s great that some people are able to cycle to work, but keep in mind it’s simply not practical for everyone.

sorry Flo – you will find great food and lunch options there and lots of office buildings but the parking is one of the worst any where – there is a small section of parking near the Turner Senior citz club on the street and in a dirt area (not sure of current prices) that would be more reasonable than in the middle – but you have to be an early worker to get those.

for those who drive, i wouldn’t wish city west on anyone.

I fail to see how cycling could not be practical for any able-bodied person.

Lack of showers and/or lockers. Don’t want to be stinkin’ it up in the office all day.

Yse John, but think of your poor colleagues that have to sit next to you after you ride in.
