Cars line up waiting to get on to the barge over Christmas. STRADBROKE Island residents have called on barge company Straddie Ferries to put up signs limiting the amount of time people can park at the Dunwich barge terminal.
The company said it was working with Redland City Council to allow council officers to issue fines for illegally parked cars at the Junner Street terminal car park.
When council takes over patrolling the car parking, fines for exceeding the time limits will be issued in line with council local bylaws.
Before that can happen, a Stradbroke Ferries spokesman said the free parking site would have to be zoned a regulated parking area.
“Stradbroke Ferries has listened to the residents of North Stradbroke Island at their own initiative has entered into the process of a managed car park by working with council,” a spokesman said.
“While there is no immediate date from council to start with regulated parking, Stradbroke Ferries is planning as soon as possible.”
Signs for varying time limits will be erected with the maximum limit in some spots being 24 hours.
The barge and ferry company said residents would be told in advance of the changes and given faire warning.
The company also promised that parking spots would not be reduced when council took over regulating the site.
“We would expect parking to be more readily available due to long-term parkers going elsewhere,” the company said.
