The Federal Government has announced they are to allocate $500m to build 50 commuter car parks in our major cities across Australia, with close to 30 of these to be built in metropolitan Melbourne. With this in mind, Parking Australia is holding a ‘Commuter Car Park’ Forum for all stakeholders to attend and hear about these projects and how they can and should be delivered. The Forum will include the Federal Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure, Alan Tudge, speaking on his vision for the projects and benefits for commuters.
The Minister’s presentation will be followed by presentations from public transport consultants Harry Barber and Leigh Bromley of Phillip Boyle & Associates, and Cristina Lynn and Andrew Morse from parking and traffic consultancy firm ptc. Commercial architect, Tim Leslie, from Bates Smart will also speak.
The event will also include the opportunity to network with the car parking industry, as well as those involved in the design and contraction of car parking facilities.
With an unprecedented number of transport projects being rolled out across all states to help ease the congestion in our major cities, this event is not to be missed. The forum will be followed by networking drinks and canapés.
