Cullen Bay Parking Strategy – Property Council of Australia

The Northern Territory Government invited us to comment on car parking at the Cullen Bay precinct to help shine a light on how motorists use the available parking and to address current and future parking demand.

Car parking in Cullen Bay is often at or exceeding capacity and the Northern Territory Government recognises the need to have a consistent and effective operational management strategy for the limited car park availability.

The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics has engaged civil infrastructure engineering specialist, GHD, to lead the Cullen Bay Parking Management Strategy. The Department will be working closely with the City of Darwin and Cullen Bay Marina Management Corporation to develop this strategy.

The project aims to rationalise car parking requirements in terms of car spaces and potential users of the precinct; public transport and emergency services; and traffic movement, short and long term usage, permitted hours of use and car park dimensions to suit a range of vehicles.

There is also a need to determine predicted long term growth of Cullen Bay, Mandorah and the Tiwi Islands and the potential impact on the demand for parking in Cullen Bay.

This study will help to identify the immediate needs of users of the Cullen Bay precinct and determine both short and longer term solutions to meet these needs.
