Work To Commence On Railway Street Carpark

Thursday, 04 Mar 2021

Work To Commence On Railway Street Carpark Construction has commenced on a new public car park located at the corner of Railway Street and Ulong Street (69 Railway Street) Griffith, funded by the Australian Government under the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program. 
The construction of the car park will include 49 car spaces including two accessible spaces and provision for bicycles.
Council’s Director Infrastructure and Operations, Mr Phil King said the construction is expected to be completed by 30 June 2021, weather permitting.
“Normal hours of construction will be from 7am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, however works may occasionally be required on Saturdays and Sundays,” said Mr King.
“Works should be limited in disruption for the community, however we appreciate your understanding and patience throughout the construction period.”
Civil works will include pavement construction, sealing, drainage, footpath, kerb and gutter, concrete median works, lighting and landscaping including shade trees.
There will be minor traffic detours associated with the extension of the centre median along Railway Street. A road closure with suitable traffic control and detours will be in place at the time of construction.
Griffith Mayor, Councillor John Dal Broi said the construction of the carpark is just another way Council is making living and working in Griffith easier.
“We recognise the importance of providing parking spaces within the CBD, and the construction of this 49 space carpark will assist in easing the congestion in Banna Avenue,” said Councillor Dal Broi.
“Griffith is thriving and this is just one of the many projects underway or in the planning stages which will help grow Griffith into the future.”
For questions regarding these works contact Shree Shrestha, Council’s Works Manager – Construction, on 1300 176 077.
