PTA allows City extension for temporary parking

PTA Christmas parking

Shoppers and workers have been enjoying the indulgence of temporary free parking in the CBD on the Public Transport Authority (PTA) land (Lot 601 Marine Terrace) since before Christmas last year.

The PTA has agreed to extend temporary free parking on the lot until the end of the financial year. City CEO, Ken Diehm, said the City appreciates the PTA’s decision to allow the extension.

“The City is very appreciative of the PTA’s consent to allow this extension for temporary use of parking, while the City awaits State approval to fund the purchase of the land,” he said.

“Once the City has acquired the lot, it is likely we will continue to use it for temporary free parking until development occurs.”
