Parking Woden Style

By johnboy 28 November 2012 28

woden parking

After a break for a few days the parking photographs have made a storming resurgence.

Cameron has sent this in:

I’ve finally decided to send in a photo of a Woden regular (car park southside of Aviation House).

I haven’t been keeping count, but if I said this vehicle had been booked 20 times this year it would be a conservative estimate.

No ticket today alas, but the owner of this vehicle dutifully places their prepaid parking ticket on the dash every time.

No sign of a disabled sticker (not that this would allow them to park in this ‘spot’ though).

Enjoy.

I”ve been working in Fyshwick for nearly 25 years, and one of the few advantages of working there is the free parking. I wonder how long it’s going to last.

Side not on Woden parking. As it has warmed up, all the people who are too soft in the middle of winter have dusted off their motorcycles and scooters. It is getting to the point where it is hard to get a spot in the free motorcycle parking bays. I didn’t have that problem the first week in July this year.

This person is again parked illegally today, in the same spot too.

Which should make it easy for the parking police to issue a ticket.

Surely they must have a ‘system’ where they get out of the fine each time (e.g. car is in someone else’s name [an Ex!], they can claim it is somehow not illegally parked,…)?

Having worked at Health, the parking there is an absolute nightmare.

I’ve never had a problem. You’re lucky to get a spot in the pictured carpark after about 8.20am, but the massive carpark on Irving Street that runs from the pool down to the basketball stadium is pretty much empty, even at around 9.30am and is $8 a day.

Less than five minutes to walk to Aviation House and the Health Buildings, and you get a little bit more exercise too. It’s closer than the Westfield ‘Early Bird’ parking, and you don’t have to be in early to park there either.

While spaces are available around Discovery, Aviation and Sirius buildings until 9 ish, they become very few after that. On the rare occasions I have driven to work in the area, the car park east of the football grounds has been available before about 9.15am but not much after.

Those who are obliged to drop off children at schools or day care do not have much option of arriving early if the schools or day care centres will not admit children before say 8:15 or later.

One of my colleagues said that she needed two bus connections to reach Woden, a total of almost 90 minutes in the morning. Since she also had children at day care, the only practical way of getting to work was to drive a car which she did not particvularly care to do. She went home based as soon as she could, but still came in one or two days a week.

With the proposed development at the southern end of this car park, near the library, the parking situation will be dire indeed. It was claimed that there would be no net loss of parking spaces. This may be “true” but in the absence of supported claims to the contrary, such parking will be restricted to residents or workers in that building. My response to that claim was “Yeah, right”.
