Construction To Commence At #5 Car Park

February 12, 2021

The City of Hamilton said they wish to “advise motorists, businesses and the general public of future construction at the #5 Car Park, Front Street, for the installation of a barrier gate system.”

“The barrier system will operate in a similar fashion to all other city car parks allowing ticketed entry and exit,” a spokesperson said.

“Construction at the car park will commence on or about Monday 22nd of February 2021. The public are advised that the car park will be partially closed for the duration of the works and is expected to fully re-open in April 2021.”

“There are a number of benefits to having a barrier system in place at the City’s car parks,” explained City Engineer Patrick Cooper.

“One of those benefits is ease of payment, with drivers only paying for actual time stayed and eliminating the need to display a ticket or the need to constantly top-up a device. The barrier system provides a standardized, and therefore familiar user experience around the world and offers an increased sense of security for car park users.

“Additionally, a barrier system prevents a car park from becoming overfilled and potentially dangerous. It also prevents ‘through traffic’ using a car park as a short cut to another street. It also eliminates the need to have extra staff patrolling the car parks to ticket those who have not paid, which means that City funds and attention can be put elsewhere of benefit to the community.”

    Which will create further congestion in the City… Another reason I try to avoid Hamilton and use DHL

    There are so many other issues that need/should be addressed in the COH. Vagrants, shootings, road conditions, etc. I’m afraid this move only makes the city less appealing as it will add to the congestion. Hard to believe but the Government may actually do a better job of running the city relative to the current decision makers.

    Does the COH ever get feedback from the ratepayers and/or the general public for projects such as these? Even the current government has a period of consultation and tries to hear different views.
