Parking Tuggeranong

By Blues1 - 12 October 2012 22

Anyone have any ideas or experience with street parking around Tuggeranong and walking into work? Will i upset the locals by doing this? Am i better off paying for roof parking at the hyperdome or parking at the hockey centre?

What’s Your opinion?

If someone parked out the front of my place every morning, id slash their tyres. Why you may ask, why not i say!

If I caught somebody slashing my tyres anywhere for any reason I would take the offending instrument and jam it up their arse. Why you may ask, just to remind them that their interaction with and acceptance of others skill set perhaps may need just a little work. You really are a Pitchka.

Last time i parked at the Hockey Centre it was $4/day.

Are you considering parking in Oxley/Bonython and walking to FaHCSIA/HS?

Perhaps you had better tell us your address so we make sure not to park out the front of your house.

where is the fun in that?

I could pay for parking, but I never have any change or money on me, its all plastic these days.

Plenty of banks in Tuggers. They all have plenty of change.

so, you’d vandalise someone else’s property for parking legally in a public (ie, not solely your) street for which they have paid registration fees and taxes [presumably] thus paricularly entitling them to do so just to spite them for wanting to get some exercise and save a few coins (having no idea of their financial situation). nice to be nice, innit…

Correct, suburban streets are narrow enough as it is, without some lazy prick parking their car there every day to save themselves a few $$. It starts off with one car, word of mouth gets out, then 2, 3, 10, 30 cars, then what?

OP never stated thay wanted to park there in order to get some ‘exercise’. Just a tight ass.

I pay rego etc too, taxes too blah blah blah.
Cant afford parking? Clearly cant afford the cost to run a car and its associated costs i.e. parking. There are other ways to get around…

The Country Comfort Hotel offers weekly parking at reasonable rates but I belive that spots are limited

Yep, that’s what they are like.

I temporarily lived in Kambah a few years ago while house-hunting, and my car was vandalised 3 times – clearly by a phuckwit like pitchka who didn’t like my car against the kerb on the public street outside their house.

You wonder why the teenagers of Kambah are such scum? Check out the adults of Kambah…..lamentable small-minded morons.

Thank you all very much 🙂

The locals all sound rather scary and i’d rather not upset them. hehe, Yeah was thinking of having a nice walk to work, used to park around Woden and walk in and that was pleasant.

Hockey Centre sounds good.. dropping daughter off a child care in Belco then driving down, so getting early isn’t an option on most days.

I could pay for parking, but I never have any change or money on me, its all plastic these days.

Parking in Tuggers? Get in early (before 8) and you won’t have ANY issues. One second later and you’re in a world of hurt.

That reminds me, I’ve left my car down at Homeworld all day. D’oh.

Sounds like id to me. Freud was onto something after all.

Street parking where there are no restriction signs is fine as long as you are considerate about it. Some areas near urban centres do have time restrictions for parking though. If it is where the residents usually park, it may not be appreciated. But if the spot is usually clear during the daytime, it should be fine. The only problem I ever had with street parking in Canberra was in one of the older suburbs where they don’t have signs for bus stops. Or there is usually just a wooden pole in the ground to indicate bus stops, because you can’t park at bus stops.

There is a fair amount of free parking around Tuggeranong but does fill up quickly. Some of the spots include Anketell Street, Scollay street (recyling depot end) and also an area out the front of pine island.

If you get in later you have the hockey centre which you have to pay for or the rooftop. If you dont care about walking there is plenty of parking around Greenway and then about a 1.5km walk to the shops along the bike path

Yeah, you will upset the locals 🙂
