Changes to car parking

We are making significant parking changes along this busy commuter route to encourage more people to go by bike or bus and help reduce carbon emissions.

As part of our approach to these interim street changes, some parking may still need to be adjusted. We’re working closely with businesses in particular spots.

Tinakori Road (Botanic Garden entrance to Bowen/Tinakori intersection)

  • All parking on both sides removed (11 coupon parking spaces and 3 P10 spaces on northern side, 21 P120 spaces and 5 residents only parking spaces on Botanic Garden side)

St Mary Street

  • Existing loading zone changed to a P10 time-restricted loading zone
  • 10 coupon parking spaces changed to 24/7 residents only parking

Bowen Street (Tinakori intersection to The Terrace)

  • All parking on northern (Thorndon) side removed (55 coupon parking spaces, 6 P60 spaces and 10 metered parking spaces)
  • Most parking on southern side removed (81 coupon parking spaces and 1 P10 space)
  • New mobility parking space replaces one of the 2 existing P10 parking spaces just up from The Terrace

The Terrace (uphill side near Bowen)

  • 2 loading zones changed to P10 parking spaces

Whitmore Street (Lambton Quay to Waterloo Quay)
