A new access road around the Park ‘n’ Ride allows for vehicle access to and from the Park ‘n’ Ride from the north and south. This new road also provides access to the new Kiss ‘n’ Go spaces and to the North East Hockey Club.
Kiss ‘n’ Go spaces provided at the south-east corner of the Park ‘n’ Ride near the bus stop and in the south-west corner of the new access road, adjacent to the Golden Grove High School. The Kiss ‘n’ Go spaces provide a safe place, off the access road, for vehicles to pull over and commuters and school students to exit at the footpath that will lead to the bus stop on The Grove Way and also to Golden Grove High School.
Access to the North East Hockey Club is provided via a new driveway connected from the new Park ‘n’ Ride access road. The Hockey Club can be accessed from the north or south access roads off The Grove Way. The southern access road provides an alternative entry and exit to The Grove Way via a signalised intersection. Please see the plan below for more details.
To allow safe entry and exit to the Park ‘n’ Ride, Kiss ‘n’ Go and the Hockey Club, the junction of Marie Clarke Drive and The Grove Way has been upgraded to become a 4-way signalised intersection. The upgrade includes the addition of a fourth road providing access to the Park ‘n’ Ride, with one lane in and two lanes out. It also includes an additional right turn lane for south bound vehicles from The Grove Way.
Open flow design
The design for the Park 'n' Ride allows for an open and well-ventilated structure. The façade of the structure is made up of perforated aluminium panels that allow for natural air flow as well as the ability to see in and out the structure. The ground floor of the structure is also very open with wide walkways.
