City Parking

Post  potatomasher on Wed 18 Nov 2009, 5:07 pm

here's an email i got from Sydney Council when i wrote to them about parking bikes [u might know this but i didnt]

Dear Steve,

Thank you for your email.

Motorcycle and Scooter riders no longer need to buy or display a ticket
in the City of Sydney, which includes the CBD, Pyrmont, Redfern, Ultimo,
Darlinghurst and Kings Cross. Simply park as you usually would, and
remember to observe the time restrictions. If you need to park all day,
use an untimed motorcycle-only space instead.

If you would like any further information please visit
http://www.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/AboutSydney/ParkingAndTransport/Motor
CycleParking.asp or call 02 9265 9333

Kind regards,
Dallas Scott
Customer Service Officer
City Of Sydney
Tel: 02 9265 9333
Fax: 02 9265 9222

Old thread, but this fits nicely here, there is a petition started by a NR from Qld requesting Brisbane City council to adopt Melbourne footpath parking, worth getting behind I reckon....

BCC Footpath Parking

Being a New South Welshman, I love Victoria.  
Spent a week in Melbourne, last week, just for a mini break. 
Food is awesome. Transport cant be beat. Cant get lost. Park your bike on the footpath. 
The Victorian Gov seems to spend a lot more of its revenue on the people, than NSW. 
If there's not a way to charge the motorcyclist to park on the footpath, I doubt that it will happen here. 
Hope it gets up in BrisVegas.

I've never seen the wording on the regs for Vic.

Do you know what the stipulation is on positioning so foot traffic is not obstructed?

From the VicRoads web site.

Footpath parking
In Victoria, you can park your motorcycle on a footpath, unless there is a sign saying you can't.
When parking your motorcycle you must not get in the way, or block the path of pedestrians, delivery vehicles, public transport users or parked cars.
