Canberra’s public servants to lose parking

The parking privileges of Canberra’s senior bureaucrats are to be further reduced as the National Capital Authority (NCA) attempts to end free parking in Canberra’s parliamentary triangle.

According to The Canberra Times, the NCA says that moves are being made to try and prevent public servants from using short-term car parks meant for visitors to national institutions, and eradicate the use of nature strips and verges as free-all-day car parks.

The Australian Capital Territory government sees the availability of thousands of free car parks, when workers in most of Canberra’s town centres must pay to park, as a barrier to its desire to increase public transport passenger numbers.
