State Member for Redlands Matt McEachan has joined with Cr Mark Edwards to call for a moratorium on parking fines at Weinam Creek until the construction of the new Redland Bay Marina bus station is complete.


Mr McEachan said he and Cr Edwards had been inundated with calls from commuters who were worried they would be fined while trying to find legal parking options during the upgrade.


“We understand there has been a lot of confusion with regards to parking at the Redland Bay Marina bus station,” Mr McEachan said.


“While this facility is under construction, I’m joining with Cr Edwards to ask for a freeze on parking fines.”

Cr Edwards said he was on the record supporting the moratorium.

The Redland Bay Marina bus station is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
