On-street Parking Plan for North Adelaide

Council sought community feedback on the best ways to manage on-street event parking around Adelaide Oval and North Adelaide.

Background

Council sought your comments to help us develop a plan to address demand for on-street parking for events at Adelaide Oval. The draft plan proposes some permanent changes to on-street parking over and above event times.

It is anticipated that a high number of spectators would like to travel to Adelaide Oval by car, increasing the demand for parking. The North Adelaide area will be an attractive solution for spectators due to the ease of access to the oval and unrestricted parking.

The purpose of the Adelaide Oval On-street Parking Plan is to manage on-street parking that will be demanded by Adelaide Oval event goers, while maintaining parking for residents, businesses and Park Lands users; and maintaining the character and amenity of North Adelaide.

  • Project Outcome - Implementation of Strategy 2

    over 5 years ago

    As an immediate priority, Council is implementing Strategy 2 of the proposed On-street Event Parking Plan.

    We have modified the Strategy as a result of community feedback and it will now include:

    • A 2 hour parking limit during Adelaide Oval events only, on streets located within approximately 1.2 kilometres of the Oval and providing affected residents with event permits (refer to enclosed map for location details), which will allow parking on the street for a longer period of time. We anticipate that the new Event Permit system will be in place prior to the first major event...

We anticipate that the new Event Permit system will be in place prior to the first major event on 22 March, 2014.
    • Extending the 2 hour event limit along War Memorial Drive (East of Frome Road), and providing affected community and sporting groups with event permits.
    • Retaining existing parking conditions in key area such as MacKinnon Parade, Montefiore Hill and Palmer Place
    • Extending ‘golf parking’ along Strangways Terrace (eastern side) to free up more spaces near the Calvary Hospital.

    Staff are currently finalising the new Event Permit system. Once the new permit system has been finalised, all eligible residents in North Adelaide and eligible community/sporting groups will be sent details of the new system, including information about how to apply.

    In parallel to the implementation of Strategy 2, Council will continue to review and progress the other strategies outlined in our proposed On-street Event Parking Plan. We will continue to work with the Stadium Management Authority (SMA) to deliver its overall Traffic and Transport Management Plan for Adelaide Oval.

    Planned activities include:

    • Providing additional taxi drop-off/pick-up zones
    • Providing new on-street parking signage to minimise confusion and clearly outline the new parking restrictions
    • Implementing a parking education and communication plan prior to the first major event
    • Monitoring and evaluating the impact to on-street conditions in North Adelaide (including areas outside of the new 2 hour limit event zone)
    • Closing a section of War Memorial Drive (events only) to cater for coach bus parking and accessible companion parking
    • Encouraging people to use public transport and utilise the city’s off-street car parks.

    We appreciate your patience while we continue to work with the Stadium Management Authority to balance the needs of Adelaide Oval visitors with those of local residents, businesses, workers and community groups.

    Council is actively supporting the Stadium Management Authority (SMA) in its preparation of an overall traffic and transport management plan, which will directly affect our parking strategy. We understand that the SMA will complete its work before Christmas and Council therefore expects to consider the details, including the Adelaide Oval On-Street Event Parking Plan, in December 2013.
