The Hargreaves Street multi-storey car park will extend its opening hours on Friday and Saturday evenings and will remain open on Sundays after a recent successful trial over Christmas. From February 18, the car park will remain open until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings and from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. More news: Parking will be free during these times. Caroline Gryll, manager of safe and healthy environments for the City of Greater Bendigo, said during the trial that the parking lot extended its hours to provide free parking options for residents and visitors. “The purpose of the trial was to provide alternative parking options to support local downtown businesses during the busy Christmas holiday period,” she said. Other news: “The city has monitored usage rates during extended trial periods and has adjusted hours of operation to reflect key usage times on an ongoing basis. The public restrooms located in the parking lot lobby will also remain open during the same hours, which is great news for people dining, shopping and entertaining in the city center. “Signage will be changed in the parking lot to reflect the new current hours of operation.” The trial began in November and aimed to provide more parking options for residents and visitors supporting local businesses in the CBD during the busy Christmas holiday period.
