Port of Melbourne Parking Enforcement

Truck queuing Melbourne

Port of Melbourne Operations has advised that from next Wednesday, 1 May, City of Melbourne Parking Infringement Officers will commence parking enforcement within the Port.

Parking infringement notices will be issued to vehicles and trailers parked in contravention of existing parking sign directions.

According to the Port of Melbourne “congestion from vehicle queuing and parking in non-designated areas on Port roads has become an increasing concern and significantly impacts Port efficiency.”

The inference in the Port’s statement is that the queuing is all the fault of truck drivers.

CTAA has asked the Port of Melbourne when they will instigate discussions to address the underlying causes of trucks having to park up in the Port precinct(s) due to delays at container terminals or other facilities in the Port?
