Council is constructing a car park at Railway Parade, Linden, and installing new signage to manage traffic at the entrance to the walking track to Paradise Pool.
The existing parking area on Railway Parade is currently unsealed and uncontrolled, with no parking restrictions in place. There will be new signage and line marking to guide vehicles. This will maximise the number of safe parking spaces (11) while restricting overflow parking, to ensure resident and railway access is maintained.
- Paradise Pool is an increasingly popular tourist attraction located in the Blue Mountains National Park, near Linden.
- The pool is accessed via a walking track which starts at Railway Parade, Linden.
- Following the introduction of parking restrictions in Caley Lane to manage excessive and uncontrolled parking, the subject site of Railway Parade is now the designated parking location to access Paradise Pool.
- A formalised parking area on Railway Parade will be constructed within the general footprint of the existing unformed parking area. The car park will have 11 formal spaces.
- The design allows for seven 90 degree spaces, with three parallel spaces on the eastern side of Railway Parade, and one on the western side.
- While there are a small number of days during the year when more visitors frequent the location, Council is only constructing 11 parking spaces for environmental reasons.
- The new parking spaces will improve amenity for Linden residents by control parking in the area.
