Update on car parking for Inveresk Precinct users – 15/10/20

Work is set to begin on the new 852-space northern car park (at the Roundhouse) from 1 November 2020, following development application approval in September. Once completed, the car park will be available for the community, students and staff.

The northern car park will be fully closed and unavailable for use from 1 November throughout the summer period. The first stage of the car park is scheduled for completion in early 2021 and will then be available for use.

With the first stage open, the second stage of construction will be undertaken in the first half of 2021, with the project scheduled for full completion by mid-year.

The redeveloped car park will include native landscaping and retain the existing railway turntable. The car park will remain a public asset, available for the community in its entirety during major events around the precinct and at University of Tasmania Stadium. The project represents a substantial component of the 1,100 parking spaces that will be available across the precinct.

The new car park will provide a safe and easy connection to current cycle and pedestrian pathways, and once completed will become a stop on the Tiger Bus route around multiple city locations. Electric vehicle charging stations will be installed.

The car park behind Architecture is also now permanently closed due to construction.

This means the only car park option between November 2020 – February 2021 is the main circular car park at Inveresk. Entry is via the roundabout at the corner of Invermay Rd and Lindsay Streets. The cost is $2.00 per hour / $4.00 per day / $36.00 per month and includes the Tiger Bus.
