Council is seeking public feedback on its upgrade to the Alford Street car park in Kingaroy

February 17, 2020

South Burnett Regional Council is seeking public input into plans to upgrade the Alford Street car park in Kingaroy (ie. the carpark behind the banks).

SBRC has allocated $600,000 from its 2019-2020 Capital Works budget towards the project, which will include:

  • Rehabilitation of the pavement, including a new seal and line marking;
  • Disabled parking;
  • A caravan dump point;
  • Merging of the Alford Street access to form a one-way entrance;
  • Recreational vehicle and trailer parking bays;
  • Upgraded lighting;
  • New pedestrian access from Hector Munro Lane (the pedestrian walkway from Kingaroy Street) to the Rail Trail;
  • Provision for future electric vehicle charge stations; and
  • Associated landscaping.

A Council spokesperson said the project would increase usability for both the local and travelling public by improving safety and accessibility to Kingaroy businesses and community centres.

Works are expected to begin in May or June.

    I think this a very good proposal, a couple more caravan parks would have been more beneficial.

    To the knockers who say it’s a waste of money, try telling the caravanners who come to town and can’t get a parking spot to spend money in town. They drive off to another town. Kingaroy’s loss.

    With the dump point, make sure it is level to the road and you can get a 60 foot vehicle beside it to empty it.

    I think both ends of the car park should to be two way traffic and all parking bays should be drive through. Also, can the centre parking row be set at 45° drive through and made slightly wider to allow easier parking for cars/4WD with trailers, light trucks, motor homes and camper vans. There seems to be very limited parking for larger vehicles in the current plans.
