Local off-street parking prices rise once again

05 Dec 2017

By James Manton

The price of parking a car in Docklands has increased for the fourth-straight year at most off-street public car parks.

Docklands News has investigated public parking prices in recent years, in which they have risen consecutively.

While drivers have lost the parking space next to the Aquavista building on Docklands Drive, they have gained another two, one slightly up the road on Docklands Drive and the other on Northbank by the Yarra River.

However this has not halted price rises at most parking sites, with the most significant rise coming at 750 Collins St where the cost of half an hour to one hour parking has risen from $15 to 18, one to two hours has risen from $21 to $40, two to three hours has risen from $26 to $58, three to four hours has risen from $33 to $65 and four or more hours will cost $70.

However, conversely, the early bird special at the site has dropped from $24 to $21, though a lost ticket price has increased dramatically, from $85 to $120.

This site, alongside the NAB and Ericsson buildings, hold the dubious titles of being the three most expensive parking spots in Docklands.

The Siddeley St car park also had a significant increase, costing an average of around $4 more per hour.

While it did increase slightly, Harbour Town West and East car parks remain the most affordable parking spaces for drivers, costing $4 for one to three hours, $10 for three to six, and $15 for six to 24 hours.

Many sites like Digital Harbour and Etihad stayed at the same prices, however the World Trade Centre was the only one to drop its prices with each category lower by a few dollars compared with last year.

For a full list of car parks and their daily prices, have a look at the 2018 Docklands Directory when it is distributed this month.
