East Parade, Eastwood – Extended Parking Zone

Consultation closed on 30 June 2019

The City of Ryde is seeking feedback on a proposal to extend the 90 degree parking zone on the western-side (railway side) of East Parade by an additional 38 parking spaces.  The extended parking zone would end at Fourth Avenue.

In addition to the extended parking zone, Council is proposing new signage and line marking, installing an upgraded guard fence and additional kerb ramps as part of the improvements.

An independent road safety audit has been undertaken on the proposed design with all recommendations incorporated into this proposal.

WHAT ARE THE PROPOSED CHANGES?

The proposal will provide a significant increase in the availability of formalised on‑street parking on East Parade for residents and visitors to the area.  Upgraded signage and line marking along the full length of East Parade will create a safer road environment for all road users.  There will be some minor loss of on-street parking on the residential side of the road in order to install new kerb-ramps and formalise existing statutory parking restrictions.

Whilst significant trees in the area are being retained, some trees on the western‑side of East Parade within the work zone will be removed as part of the upgrade works, with some replanting occurring.

WHY IS THE CHANGE BEING CONSIDERED?

The western-side of East Parade, between First Avenue and Gordon Crescent is significantly utilised by commuters during the working week.  The provision of additional parking spaces will eliminate the current practice that sees commuters parking in a haphazard manner on the grass verge on the western-side of the road, often in unsafe locations.  All access points to State Rail property will be clearly delineated ensuring access is maintained at all times.
