Cheaper parking on Bridge Road
Friday 11 January 2019
Parking on Bridge Road just got cheaper, giving visitors to the Richmond shopping strip more time to shop, dine and get things done.
Visitors who pay $2 for their first half hour will receive their second half hour for free. Any extra time after that first hour will cost $4 per hour, which is the current rate. This will give visitors to Bridge Road the time they need to shop, dine and get things done.
Bridge Road boasts some of Richmond’s best restaurants, cafes and bars, as well as furniture and other specialty stores. It also has a huge offering of health and wellbeing services.
This new price will be clearly signed and available via all payment types – including cash and card.
This approach is made possible by our investment in “smart” parking technology for the strip.
We will also make some minor changes to the parking restrictions in some sections of the street, to make sure restrictions are all consistent.
The trial will be evaluated at the six and 12-month marks, with regular briefings and updates from retailers and council officers throughout its duration.
