Major car park upgrade good news for motorists

By Kevin Kelly

Motorists in Bunbury will be excited by the revamped and easy-to-use car parking in the city – shopping could be made a lot less stressful.

Improved traffic flow and better access to shops around the CBD will be enticing for anyone looking at real estate in Bunbury, and the developments are good news for the future as well.

Parking when and where you need

In late February, the Wittenoom Street visitor and shopper car park had the finishing touches applied, and is now completely usable once more. Enlarged parking bays exceed the minimum standard required, meaning that parking anything smaller than a Hummer will be a breeze!

"The size of the bays now exceeds the minimum standard, which means a lot more room for vehicles and also easier access," said Parking team leader Neil Dyer to Bunbury City Council.

"Even though we have increased the bay size, we have been able to make more efficient use of the available space and created an extra six bays."

A new road layout has also been designed to improve traffic flow, which means less congestion around the car park itself. A new entry and exit point has been opened, motorcycle parking allocated, lighting upgraded, footpaths repaired and ticket machines moved to be more accessible for everyone.

Cost-saving points towards sustainable future

The development was completed for around $100,000 and came in under budget. What's more, some of the asphalt that was removed is able to be recycled and used on projects in the future, so waste from the car park upgrade is reduced. Many new developments around Bunbury could take lessons from the sustainable project and look at ways to effectively save money and reduce waste products.

For families looking at buying real estate in Bunbury, great access to city parking might be high on the list of requirements for your next home. Talk to the experts at Ray White Bunbury to find out how they can help.
