Kiama Council’s Director Engineering & Works, Mike
Dowd says the Gerringong CBD will have increased parking space this summer, with upgrades to the Figtree Lane car park, near the IGA.
The upgrades will see 24 more spaces added to the current car park, as well as improvement in traffic arrangements.
The larger car park will be set on terraced levels, and an extra entrance and exit will be provided at the southern end of Figtree Lane.
The work is scheduled to commence after the completion of the new Gerringong Library and Museum in August, to reduce disruptions and loss of parking.
The upgrades involve a significant amount of earthworks, and other challenges, which means the car park south of Figtree Lane will be closed during construction.
A traffic management plan will be developed to ensure access for parking and deliveries.The upgrades are expected to take two months, and be completed before the busy summer season.
