More free parking during the City Centre Renewal

 

Visitors to Warrnambool’s city centre now have more free parking options.

Warrnambool City Council will provide 42 free, 90-minute parking spaces in the Cramond and Dickson Car Park.

This is in addition to 148 free, 90-minute parking spaces in Ozone Car Park.

“The free parking is being made available while the City Centre Renewal is under way,” Warrnambool Mayor Cr Robert Anderson said.

“Both of these car parks provide great access to Liebig Street via short laneways and people can now easily reach the east or the west side of the street from an off-street car park.

“The free parking is part of Council’s business support package which is all about encouraging people to keep supporting the family-run businesses in Liebig Street while the construction work takes place.”

Ozone Car Park can be accessed via Kepler and Timor streets. Cramond and Dickson Car Park can be accessed via Timor Street or Koroit Street.

The 2018 stage of the renewal will see the transformation of Liebig Street between Timor and Koroit streets.

The work will include upgrading underground infrastructure, new road pavement, removal of gutters and the installation of new street furniture, activity nodes, public art and wider footpaths paved with bluestone.

On-street parking within this block will also be free while the work is in progress – time limits will still apply.

The 2018 stage is being delivered in two halves with the northern half of the block being worked on first, followed by the southern half of the block.

Work began at the start of this month and is expected to be complete by towards the end of 2018.

The $15 million City Centre Renewal is funded by the Australian and Victorian governments and Warrnambool City Council.
