Parking/traffic around Aubin Grove Train Station

Consultation has concluded

The City is mindful that the new station will have parking and traffic impacts on the surrounding roads and we want to inform the community about what is being proposed to manage the situation.

We asked

We sought your feedback about the proposed parking controls by Friday 31 March by completing an online survey or sending an email to comment@cockburn.wa.gov.au

Background

The opening of the Aubin Grove Train Station by the State Government on 23 April will give local residents access to the Perth-Mandurah rail line. About 2,000 parking bays will be provided at the station. Residents can also walk or cycle to the station or take advantage of the feeder bus services.

New parking limits on local roads

Parking limits are proposed for roads near the station. Experience shows that it is necessary to implement parking controls around high demand parking areas to minimise the impact that overflow commuter parking could have on surrounding residential and business areas.

A map has been attached to explain the proposed changes, which include:

  • A new parking precinct

    Covering both sides of the freeway, the City is introducing a parking precinct where parking limits will apply


  • 4-hour time limit for on-street parking between 8am and 5pm on weekdays

    This will apply to all roads in the parking precinct. It will have minimal impact on residents who can park on their property, crossover or verge. Verge parking by others, such as commuters, is not permitted unless they have the consent of the owner or occupier of the nearby land.

  • Short-term time limits for parking bays

    Seven days a week, there will be a 15 minute time limit for Kiss ‘N Ride parking and a 2-hour time limit for parking bays around Harvest Lakes Village between 8am and 5pm. Time limits in residential streets will apply Monday to Friday only.

  • No Parking in lanes

    To ensure that waste management trucks can access wheelie bins in all streets, the City has introduced no parking in lanes. This also helps residents get their vehicles in/out of their property without being obstructed.

  • Lauderdale Drive

    No Stopping restrictions on the road near the train station car park, for amenity reasons and to ensure that buses using Lauderdale Drive to access the bus interchange are not obstructed

  • Baler Court
    No Stopping restrictions on the east side of Baler Court, Hammond Park.
    Once the train station opens, the City will monitor the effectiveness of the parking controls over time, allowing for a settling-in period during which commuter’s access patterns to the new station are established.
    If, as a result of the monitoring and resident feedback, it is found that commuter parking is creating impacts beyond the boundary of the parking precinct then the boundary can be extended.
    Traffic
    The impact of traffic generated by the train station will be closely monitored. In mid-2015 the City began collecting traffic data on key streets around the train station. These surveys have been repeated each year to monitor any changes to the volume or distribution of traffic.
    As a condition of planning approval for the station, the Public Transport Authority are required to undertake a traffic study of the local transport network within six months of the station opening and identify and implement solutions to address any impacts that can be attributed to the train station.

Sometimes there are more cars per property than parking provisions and property owners or tenants need to park on the street. You asked Council to consider parking permits.

We did:

At Council’s Ordinary Meeting on Thursday 13 April, Council was agreeable to issuing some parking permits. We are now working through the details and will advise residents by letter about the arrangements.
