Cr. Joe Jurisevic inspects Goodwin Street carpark upgrade

Council has finished upgrading the carpark at Tewantin’s Read Park.

Cr Joe Jurisevic said the Goodwin Street carpark refurbishment had delivered formal parking for 23 vehicles and a further three designated motorcycle spaces.

“The project includes a new asphalt surface as well as changes to entry and exit arrangements so it’s safer for both pedestrians and motorists,” he said.

“The new kerb and channel with some localised earthworks will minimise stormwater runoff into the cricket club’s shed.”

The work also paves the way for better environmental outcomes, including better protection of tree roots from damage by vehicles. It will also prevent sediment run off reaching the sports fields.

“Council has installed a new biopod on site to filter carpark run-off, which will improve the quality of the water before it reaches the nearby wetlands, a known habitat of the vulnerable wallum froglet,” Cr Jurisevic said.

The new carpark will no doubt improve the situation for competitors and spectators visiting Read Park for weekend sport matches.
