TAMS have announced they’re changing the parking in Barton around Telopea Park:
“From Monday 19 August 2013, parking on the west side of Telopea Park will be prohibited,” Ken Marshall, acting Director of Roads ACT said today.
“Currently, vehicles are parking on the side of the road along Telopea Park which restricts the space available for two-way traffic.

“In response to a number of concerns raised by the public, Roads ACT conducted an investigation of the area to see how traffic movements and road safety could be improved.
This investigation included consultation with the local community via the Kingston and Barton Residents’ Association.
“As a result, a decision has been made to prohibit parking at all times on the park side of Telopea Park west. A two-hour time restriction will also be introduced in the adjacent offstreet car parks accessed from Telopea Park west.”
Mr Marshall said alternative parking options were available nearby.
“Time restricted parking is available in the car parks in the Wentworth Avenue median as well as unrestricted parking in the car parks around the Old Bus Depot Markets.
