Work Completed On Railway Street Car Park
Wednesday, 13 Jul 2022Construction has been completed on a new public car park located at the corner of Railway Street and Kooyoo Street (53 Railway Street) Griffith. The $625,000 project was funded by the Australian Government under the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program and Griffith City Council ($582k and $43k respectively).
The Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program supports local councils to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects across Australia, supporting jobs and the resilience of local economies to help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new car park contains 48 car spaces, including 18 shaded spaces, two accessible spaces, drainage works and landscaping.
Griffith Mayor, Councillor Doug Curran said the construction of the carpark is just another way Council is making living and working in Griffith easier.
“Providing parking within the CBD has long been recognised as a priority for the community and I am pleased to be able to announce that work has been completed, and the car park is accessible to road users,” said Councillor Curran.
“We appreciate the patience of the community and hope this new car park, along with the other car park completed in Railway Street last year, eases the parking congestion in the CBD.
“Griffith is thriving and this is just one of the many projects recently completed, underway or in the planning stages which will help grow Griffith into the future.”
Sussan Ley, Member for Farrer said the local funding from the Coalition Government was absolutely vital in keeping the MIA economy ticking over through the COVID shutdowns, allowing councils to put dollars into their priority projects.
“Parking spaces along Banna Avenue in particular have grown very tight, so this is a much needed and close alternative for access to the main CBD,” said Minister Ley.
