Proposed Parking Changes at Griffith Shops

April 3, 2015

in Past Issues

The ACT Government is working on some changes to the public space in front of the Griffith Shopping Centre. The changes are planned for completion by 30 June 2015.

A copy of the plan can be accessed at the bottom of this post.

In order to meet the gradients required by current Australian Standards, the upgrades include the relocation of the parking space for persons with a disability (PWD), from the western end near the pharmacy to the eastern end.

The initial design relocated this PWD space in front of the Shop-Rite supermarket. However, due to concerns raised by leaseholders, Roads ACT have revised the relocation and alignment of the parking spaces in front of the shops.

The proposal now provides some 90 degree parking to reduce any loss of spaces. It proposes a PWD space closer to the centre of the shopping area. The 90 degree parking spaces and aisle width are compliant with Australian Standards and overall, there would be a gain of one parking space.

The GNCA Committee has considered this and earlier versions of the plan. The current version of the plan is supported by the Committee.
