Paid parking in Barton from 16th

By esmeralda leroy gomez 31 July 2010 24

The word is out around the government offices in Barton that the parking lot behind the Ottoman (bounded by Macquarie, Broughton, Blackall Sts is closing this afternoon and re-opening on the 16th AS A PAY AS YOU USE PARKING LOT.

Where does anyone suggest I park? It’s always been a scramble to get a spot in there after 8:30 anyway, and I don’t imagine there’s many other spaces available close by.

Also I’ve heard $8 per day when it re-opens. Anyone confirm this?

What’s Your opinion?

Is there anyone in the ACT Administration with the gumption to perhaps design a system of parking zone passes so that people are not having to cart around wodges of change (or leave them in their cars as a target for opportunistic scumbag druggos) or would that be too difficult – i.e. making life just a little more convenient for those that appear to have to pay for the nose for the privilege at each drop of the hat.

You know, 3 monthly, 6 monthly and yearly passes – some that are good for the City only, some for a mix of zones….or is this intellectually bankrupt City so addicted to the daily Ka Ching of loose change?

I intend to keep using my car and parking in Barton for free as long as I can. If it no longer becomes possible, I’ll get a spot in my building’s paid underground parking area. I will try my best to avoid giving the ACT Government any parking money or riding on any of its buses.

Let us know how you get on with that.

Are you also going to avoid driving on the roads, attending the hospitals and sending your children to the schools that they fund?

What do you mean by “they fund” surely you mean “we fund”. Where do you think that the Governmnets gets all this money to fritter away on social experiments like free health care, eductaion, public art and rehabilitation programs? It’s our money. Some of us were even silly enough to give them more than we were absolutely obliged to.

There is the dirt (mud) carpark at the end of Blackall St that you could try, although I’m pretty sure that it fills up rather early.
