Airport Parking Price Hike

By fnaah 5 October 2006 25

The Canberra International Airport will be increasing parking fees at Brindabella Business Park and Fairbairn on November 1.

The new fees were emailed to tenants and staff today. A cheery newsletter-like .pdf document informs us that the daily rate of $5 remains unchanged, but fees for weekly, monthly, 3-monthly, 6-monthly and annual parking permits are all going up.

Perhaps the new revenue is to be put towards solving the worsening traffic dilemma. With 3000 more staff due to move into Brindabella by the end of 2006, I’m sure we can expect the parking lots to be full before 8.30, and the cars bumper-to-bumper all the way back to Russell until 9.30. Huzzah.

ant, ah no. If you couldn’t tell from the tone of my post, I was being sarcastic.

Perhaps you need to learn to decode the meaning from text.

Then you can play with the adults.

I’ve just left a job at Brindabella Business Park, the location was the main reason. But more and more jobs are moving out there, and realistically not everyone can get another job somewhere else, or bothers to actually go out and get another job. I guess there is also a small percentage of people who find the airport OK to work at. In the future, one of the things I will be asking about any job is – will I be required to work at BBP? And if the answer is yes or maybe, I will say no thanks. But until more people start doing this, employers will continue to tell themselves that moving to the airport is a smart business decision (are the rents even that cheap out there??).

“NickD, have companies moving to the airport been losing staff because of it?”

Yes. The organisation I work for (which I won’t name) has moved its IT units out to BBP from Civic and has suffered huge turnover rates ever since and I’ve heard similar stories from other organisations. The quality of IT support for the rest of my organisation has dropped like a stone as a result of the move. Not suprisingly, people don’t want to work in office buildings located in the middle of nowhere with no public transport or services.

NickD, have companies moving to the airport been losing staff because of it? That would be very interesting if they had. I see the traffic snarls of people heading into BBP in the morning, and the prolongued mess as they come out at night, and wonder how they can stand it. In the current business climate with plentiful work, you’d think that some people would vote with their feet, but has there been a significant loss of staff? (I sure hope so).

Conversation eh? You sound like a petulent little kid. I wasn’t even talking to you when I posted, your post was miles back, so I’ve no idea why you decided to lash out at me.
