New parking signage to be installed in Warburton 

New parking restriction signage will be installed in Warburton this week, following the recent community engagement around parking in the township. 

The engagement took place after feedback from community members and local businesses that the parking situation in Warburton was worsening, particularly on weekends and public holidays. 
As a result of the feedback, the below changes will be made to meet current needs, enhance traffic flow and free up parking spaces within the town for residents and visitors: 
Thomas Avenue 
  • Previously unrestricted parking  
  • Will now be 4-hour parking Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm, and 2-hour parking on weekends and public holidays, 9am-5pm

  • Will now be 3-hour parking 9am-5pm.

  • Will now be 4-hour parking 9am-5pm Mon-Fri and 2-hour parking 9am-5pm on weekends and public holidays. 
  • Two extra 30-minute parking spaces have been included bringing a total of five short term spaces (one near the post office, two near Woody's Charcoal Chicken and two near Warburton Bakery) All 30-minute restrictions will apply from 9am-5pm every day of the week. 
  • Removal of one-hour restriction along Northern side of highway 
  • Extended the bus zone  
Warburton Highway Loading Zone 
  • Previously Loading Zone restrictions were 2-hour parking (8.30am-4pm Mon-Fri and 9.30am-12pm Sat)

Station Road

  • Will now be simplified so all 24 spaces are 4hr parking, 9am-5pm.
