QLD Government Department of Transport and Main Roads Technical note 138 – “Verge Parking and Idented Parking

I think the reference at the end of this extract may help – It’s from the QLD Government Department of Transport and Main Roads Technical note 138 – “Verge Parking and Idented Parking”:

1 Purpose and scope of this technical note

The purpose of this technical note is to provide guidance on the use of verge parking and indented parking. This parking is typically provided between the kerb line and property boundary, and can be a cost effective retrofit measure to relocate parking from the road pavement to the verge in order to make space for other use of the road space (such as on-road bicycle lanes).
Currently there is no technical guidance on the provision of verge and/or indented parking, and therefore this parking type may be less utilised as a treatment option. The pavement markings and signage requirements for on-road parking are addressed in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) Part 11: Parking, whilst the Austroads Guide to Traffic Management Part 11: Parking addresses many types of on and off street car parking but provision of car parking within the verge is not covered. As well as a parking issue, this is also an issue of the design of the ‘Roadside Environment’. This technical note is a supplement to Section 4.4 of the Austroads Guide to Road Design Part 6B: Roadside Environment.

Facebook Post From Cr Christian Dickson

Hi all,

Further to the extremely high interest in parking fines across the region, I wanted to do a couple of things and let you know that:

1) I fully support you and have been raising this issue for many months. I have even gone on the record on the front page of the Sunshine Coast Daily dated October 11 asking for residents to back me in seeking changes to nature strip parking.

https://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/…/planning-e…/3232919/

2) That there is currently a petition being circulated seeking for council to address parking fines and use common sense in regulating parking. Please see the petition below:

Kind regards,

Christian
