Parking signs to ease bus pain

Wanneroo City Council decided on March 3 to install ‘no stopping’ signs on the section north of Butler Boulevard, at a cost of $1600 ‘to facilitate the safe operation and movements of Transperth buses’.

The council also decided not to proceed with a parking strategy for on-street parking within 400m of the station.

The agenda report said community consultation showed many people did not like conditions on the parking permits available under current laws.

‘Questions regarding work vehicles not registered to the address were the highest concern for many residents,’ it said.

‘Under the current Parking and Parking Facilities Local law, it is not possible for the City to issue visitor parking permits for vehicles registered to another address.’
