Community feedback prompts parking signage at Mount Louisa

Date published: 26 October 2020

New parking signage is set to be installed near the carpark at the new Mount Louisa walking track following community feedback.

Townsville City Council is installing the new parking signage along Weston Street and Bayswater Road to dissuade track users from parking in unsafe ways along the street.

Deputy Mayor Mark Molachino said the Mount Louisa walking track has been more popular than anticipated and that the new signs would help keep residents safe in the area.

“Council has received feedback from residents on Weston Street about the impact parking is having on their homes and we are installing these signs to restrict parking and help address those concerns,” Cr Molachino said.

“We need users of the walking track to show some courtesy to those residents by not parking in unsafe ways or blocking driveways.

“Hopefully these new signs will prompt people wanting to park in the area to reconsider and make sure that they are doing the right thing, and for those that don’t, they may end up being fined by our parking officers that will be patrolling the area.”
