The carpark on Cox Street, Geraldine is getting an upgrade in time for the peak tourist season.

Timaru District Council Land Transport manager, Andrew Dixon, says that the existing carpark is to be upgraded and sealed to enable more user-friendly parking.

“The upgraded carpark will have marked carpark spaces, including the EV charging spaces, which will provide a formalised parking layout and improve capacity.

“There will also be marked parking bays for large and long vehicles, such as campervans, car with trailer, and house buses.

“This is a facility that was identified as needed in the Geraldine CBD, and will be a great resource, particularly for visitors.

“Other new features include a garden strip around the perimeter, concrete access way crossings of footpath, vehicle passing bay, and site drainage kerbing and sumps.”

Access to the carpark will be restricted from time to time while the upgrade work is been undertaken. Alternative roadside parking is available on the surrounding streets.

“While there will be some disruptions, we endeavour to complete the work as soon as possible. We want to thank people for their patience and understanding,” Dixon says.

The upgrade work starts from 25 November and is expected to be completed on 20 December if weather permits.
