More bays for clogged Maylands

MAYLANDS train station is set to get an additional 105 parking bays.

For several years a shortage of spaces at the station has resulted in clogged streets and commuters illegally parking on verges and median strips.

Carparks at the southern and northern end of the station are earmarked for an upgrade.

The works will require the removal of four street trees, to be replaced with 46 new trees.

Bayswater city council sought comment on the trees’ removal but none was received.

The upgrade comes before the council later this month.

  1. Funny, I don’t recall seeing ANYTHING anywhere on “Bayswater city council sought comment on the trees’ removal but none was received.” and I quite regularly read the community consultation page at the COB website as well as read the papers.
    Yay for new bays, but NOT if it is at the expense of those 2 gigantic magnificent trees either side of the new bridge!

  2. the existing trees are so close to the road i cant see why they cannot work around them. its not like they are in the way of parking bays. hope they at least use local perth trees and not introduced species.

  3. If these are new pay parking spots, how is this going to help local streets? Why pay to park when you can walk for an extra minute or two and park for free? This could very well make it worse for local streets.
