New Norfolk car park upgrade

Laskey car park earlier today.
WORK has started this week on an upgrade to Laskey car park in Pioneer Avenue, New Norfolk. The $140,000 project will be carried out by local firm Statewide Earthworks for the Derwent Valley Council.

The project has been made possible through a State Government grant to develop the site as a fully accessible public transport bus stop and car park.

The work will include the full asphalt resurfacing of the car park, provision for recreational vehicles, a new bus stop and shelter, bike racks and solar lights.  

The State Government funding provides for Laskey car park to be used as a park-and-ride facility with all-day commuter parking and access to bus services to and from Hobart. It will become the focal point for public transport in New Norfolk and two existing bus stops in Burnett St will be removed.

Improved line markings and pathways are also expected to benefit people using the car park while visiting New Norfolk's town centre.
