Have your say on Kincaid Street parking

Published: 19 Jun 2017 9:31am

Wagga Wagga City Council is currently reviewing the six-month trial of centre parking in Kincaid Street and would like to know how the community thinks it went.

The trial was in response to calls for more parking around the Fitzmaurice Street precinct and resulted in an increase from 41 to 67 parking spots between Fitzmaurice and Trail streets.

Manager City Strategy Tristan Kell is encouraging everyone to have their say on the trial.

“While no incidents were reported to Council during this time, Roads and Maritime (RMS) and New South Wales Police have raised concerns about safety and meeting Australian Standards.

“We now want to hear from the community and stakeholders about how it went and what to do next.”

In making a decision about whether or not to keep the centre parking Council will consider the feedback received alongside other factors such as liability and Australia Standards.

If the initiative was to continue the following changes will need to be considered:

  • Removal of some parks to allow for delivery vehicles to enter premises
  • No right turn into Barrand Street from Kincaid Street
  • Removal of the bike lane
