Changes to on-street parking meter fees in Macquarie Park
Effective 1 July 2017, the all-day cap payment option of $18.00 will be removed from all on-street parking meters. For example, the impact on employees who park on-street from 8.30am to 5pm will be ~$7.50.
Announcement from Council
The Macquarie Park corridor has experienced significant growth in recent years and is expected to double in floor space and worker numbers by 2031.
Congestion is an issue in the area and is expected to increase with growth. The parking provisions in the area will play a decisive role in managing this congestion by influencing the mode of transport that workers, students and visitors use to get to Macquarie Park.
In June 2016, Council endorsed changes to the parking meter fees in Macquarie Park, in response to the traffic, parking and congestion issues.
