Parking Changes Figtree Dr

30 May 2021

The opening of the NSW Health Mass Vaccination Centre has seen an increased rate of double parking on Figtree Drive as passengers are dropped off and picked up for their appointments. We have listened to local community feedback and in order to improve safety on Figtree Dr, we will be changing the parking outside the Centre to ‘No Parking’ for a 4 week trial period from Tuesday 1 June 2021 to Tuesday 29 June 2021.

Work will include
Car parking spaces on Figtree Drive will be changed to ‘No Parking’ on Tuesday 1 June 2021.
We recognise this change will impact local residents and their visitors so have ordered new signage that will be ‘No Parking 7am to 8pm’ and will allow for 2hr parking outside of these hours. We will update the community when this signage arrives and installed.

Please be advised that we have ongoing discussions with NSW Health about the Mass Vaccination Centre and they have briefed NSW Police to be more proactive in moving cars on that are double parking. They will also be reviewing the advice given to patients who make a vaccination booking to not use Figtree Dr as a parking solution. P3 car park is the best parking option, with a shuttle bus service provided. NSW Health will also be line marking the footpath on Australia Avenue with the view to keep the queue from blocking the footpath.

Location of work
6 parking spaces on Figtree Drive, opposite Mass Vaccination Centre 

Hours of work
6am to 3pm, Monday to Friday

What to expect

  • Temporary loss of 6 car parking spaces
  • Improved pedestrian and motorist safety

During this trial period, we seek your feedback on this change and will review the feedback ahead of making any further changes. Please send it through via email to enquiries@sopa.nsw.gov.au
