Beautiful Bondi Beach

Even the beach needs parking bollards! Bondi has some of the most sought out locations in Sydney, from its beaches to its long stretch of cafes and shops, Sydneysiders flock the sunny streets to take advantage of these picturesque locations. With these captivating regions however comes overcrowding, and no one knows more about just how high the volume of traffic can get than the residents and workers of Bondi.

Due to its national fame, there are always people searching for that golden ticket in a shortage of parking spots for the thousands of visitors frequenting the area. It may be frustrating for those trying to plan their day trips in to Bondi when parking is a never-ending uncertainty, but it is most frustrating for the people working and living there. A daily commute back home to Bondi, or in to work, can be stressful on its own. Factoring in the dilemma that parking may not be available for the ones who need it most creates an entirely new ecosystem for disorder.

The problem escalates more with Waverly Council reporting that only 26% of reported illegal parking belongs to Waverly registered vehicles. This means that 73% of vehicles that are reported as illegally parked belong to those who live outside areas such as Bondi or the Waverley municipality. This makes the frustrations of residents understandable, as a constant flow of illegally parked vehicles from outside areas results in daily parking shortages for those who actually live there.

Thatsmyspot.com.au was asked to help Bondi Diggers and RSL with this very issue. With beachgoers parking in the club’s onsite parking bays, members, directors, and legitimate visitors were unable to find parking at the RSL club. This is a rising issue seen across the hospitality industry, with patrons and staff finding themselves without the bays that were allocated for them. By implementing parking bollards in designated areas, this problem was eased as illegally parked vehicles could no longer disrupt the activities of those permitted in the venue’s parking lot.

We were delighted to install our carpark bollards to remedy this day-to-day stress.

By implementing our fearless fold-down parking bollards in designated areas, it was possible to ensure that no illegal parking could disrupt the day-to-day activities of those members, committee members and authorized guests permitted in those areas. And it works both ways.  And visitors are given more clear signage to avoid the cycle of fines due to accidentally parking in illegal zones during prohibited hours.

In areas with such high traffic, it becomes imperative to utilise strategies like carpark bollards in designated zones. And it works both ways. Venue members can rest assured that they have a bay as their parking bollard keeps it safely reserved, and visitors are given more clear signage to avoid the cycle of fines due to accidental illegal parking.

No more circling around their own club trying to find a parking spot close enough, no more arriving that extra hour early simply to ensure there’s a spot to park. I’m thrilled to be part of this solution!
