All vehicles parked at the airport, including in the overflow carpark, will be required to display a valid parking ticket at all times, although the first 24 hours of parking will be free. Any additional parking will be charged at a rate of $10 per each additional 24 hour period or part thereof.
City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder CEO John Walker said the introduction of paid parking was aimed at freeing up car bays for day to day users.
“We are expecting the introduction of paid parking at the airport will help address community complaints about the lack of parking at the terminal, which we believe is primarily due to FIFO workers leaving their vehicles parked long term,” he said.
“We want to make it easier for regular, day to day users to find parking at the airport, and we have already been receiving a lot of positive feedback from the community.
“Vehicles parked at the airport prior to midnight on April 30 will have a notice placed on their windscreen, and won’t receive an infringement, and if people receive an infringement due to airline delays that are beyond their control, that is something that we can address on a case by case basis.”
Three ticketing machines have been installed at the airport, with two located in the carpark and one inside the terminal. The two external machines are card only, whilst the internal machine will also take cash payments up to $30.
Ranger Services will be doing regular daily inspections of the airport carpark and issuing infringements to people who have not displayed a valid parking ticket.
