The Kingborough park and ride facilities are part of a broader package of works to develop better connections and ease congestion for commuters travelling from Hobart’s greater suburbs into the CBD.
The park and ride facilities will give people greater choice about how they travel into Hobart’s CBD. The park and ride facilities have been designed to be safe and inviting spaces, with better parking facilities and passenger transport services.
The Firthside park and ride will include improving the existing roadside bus stops and informal carpark located near the intersection of Browns Road and Groningen Road.
The Huntingfield park and ride will include improving the existing bus stops and informal carpark located adjacent to Huntingfield Avenue south of the Algona Road roundabout. This location provides convenient access for both bus services and commuters and has the capacity for high-quality bus stop facilities and extensive parking.
We will start working on the Firthside park and ride facility from Monday, 16 August 2021, and is expected to be completed in early 2022.
Work on the Huntingfield park and ride facility is scheduled to start later in 2021.
