Two Hour Car Parking: Salamanca Road

Two Hour Car Parking: Salamanca Road

The chairman of the Wellington City Council Traffic and Transport Committee, Mr. J. H. Turk, has said that although no formal decision has yet been made, two-hour parking will be installed in Salamanca Road.

Mr. Turk voiced concern at the parking conditions near the University, particularly in Salamanca Road and Kelburn Parade.

He said that the parking of cars had created a safety hazard and the condition must be alleviated.

A meeting was held last year between City Council and University authorities.

The University is to purchase the Kelburn Bowling Club site and convert it to a car park.

It was decided that when this transaction is completed the plan will be put into operation.

Earlier the Deputy Commissioner of Transport, Mr. Boyden, said he had no knowledge of such a plan.
