Parking Restrictions

Car Parking

You must pay for parking in most controlled parking zones and car parks. Parking without paying or exceeding the period allowed means you may be issued with a penalty fine.

There are two types of parking controls:
  • restrictive parking - for waiting and loading only
  • designated parking - identifies where vehicles can be left and under what conditions and includes residential parking zones
There are also areas where parking or waiting is banned:
  • double yellow lines - parking is banned, although there may be specific exceptions for loading
  • single yellow lines - parking is banned at specified times
  • red routes - a single red line usually bans stopping and parking during working hours, while a double red line bans stopping and parking at any time
