I was reading the Times last Wednesday when I noticed this article – Car parking push at Calvary. The gist of the article is Glenn McCrea (who’s running in the local elections) has passed a petition around Belconnen that got 1200 signatures to get more parking at Calvary. It was a shock to see this in a paper, because hospital parking was something I thought I was alone in worrying about.
I’ve recently moved into Belco from out of state, but I’ve had a lot of bad times with car parking at hospitals, especially hospitals that are upgrading car parks without thinking about where you’re parking. Going to see my dad, who was in the local hospital for months, got that much more painful searching for parking in surrounding suburbs. It might seem small, but its really something you can do without when you have a whole lot of other stuff on your mind!
Good on Glenn for trying to do something about this.
