36-space car park for Wilson Road, Bonnyrigg Heights

Published Friday, 24th June 2016

A new 36-space car park on Wilson Road, Bonnyrigg Heights, will be opened today by Mayor of Fairfield City Council Frank Carbone.

The car park is part of an extensive $1.5 million upgrade to Wilson Road Reserve, which is a continuation of Council's infrastructure investment across Fairfield City.

Mayor Carbone said creating extra car parking throughout our City had been a priority during his time as Mayor

“Since I came to office, almost 800 extra car parking spaces have been created throughout our City at locations such as Canley Vale, Canley Heights, Cabramatta and Fairfield City Centre.

“The 36-space car park within Wilson Road Reserve, which includes two spaces for disabled people, will accommodate the expected increase in demand for parking associated with people using the park.

“It also has a road safety factor; this area along Wilson Road has been known to have parking issues due to the nearby public school and the relatively low number of available on-street parking places for parents.

“The new car park, as well as a new roundabout at the intersection of Gloucester Street, will alleviate some of the traffic stresses experienced within the school zone during school peak times.”

The upgraded six hectare Wilson Road Reserve will open later this year. The parkland is receiving many new recreational features, including a playground featuring a flying fox, seating opportunities, a fenced dog off-leash area with separate areas for small and large dogs, and a futsal field.

A popular Everybody Walking circuit along with outdoor fitness equipment will also be installed, complementing the existing outdoor fitness equipment featured in 10 other parks across Fairfield City.
