Burwood depot challenges parking zones

Jul 19, 2011News

Burwood depot is currently in urgent talks with Burwood Council over the sudden change of parking zones around the depot.

The zones were changed as part of the new business district parking policy implemented by the council, which has changed all parking in the area to one-hour spots.

The parking on Luke Street was previously a mixture of unrestricted parking on one side and four-hour parking on the other.

There is no parking provided at the depot and the changes force staff to walk 600m up the road to access unrestricted parking that can encompass their 12-hour shifts.

This is a serious safety concern, particularly for staff walking alone at night.
