Hi Guys long time lurker first time poster Registered to whinge Got fined for the 8th time this year (twice this week) and im kind of sick of it now FYI i am based in Sydney CBD I just wanted to know any good parking spots around kent st The place on sussex is always full The on kent st (between the westpac building and grace hotel is a strip for motorcylce parking) i sometimes squeeze my bike on the end of the row with no issues and worst case i can park the bike in the 1 hr zone but have been fined 3 times i found found a solution but its a pain basically the inspector doesnt check until lunchtime, so park there in the morning around lunch time people start leaving on sussex so park there, or at least use lunch time to move bike near barangaroo (but the construction leaves huge dust residue) I have also parked under the highway that hovers over sussex st. There is a little area of footpath next to the power substation. Roughly here, http://goo.gl/maps/3aUlQ may need to rotate street view camera 180degrees However i once arrived one morning and a ranger was issueing fines. i asked him how is it illegal when NOBODY walks there and CARS EVEN PARK THERE EVERY DAY he was like "oh its footpath", even though other overpasses have bikes parked there all the time. what an ass The cba building spot is choc a block and is a bit far the diagonal strip near the end of the wynyard park area is choc a block australia square is too far but today i found a new place on kent st even further down past the westpac building near the harbour bridge entrance. there is a strip for motorcycles there, but today i saw a TON of bikes on the footpath! the footpath had these Plant features in a diamond shape. i cant describe it so heres a google maps link http://goo.gl/maps/gXfgE anyway that area has now changed to have a cycle lane and a bike parking zone, but the bikes were parked inside the gaps formed by the diamond thingys, so they were away from traffic and there were bikes along the wall as well. What i found strange was, i got a parking fine for being over the edge of the bike parking area into a timed car zone, but all these other bikes on the footpath were fine???? Also, what do the parking inspectors do if you remove your number plates for the day and put them back on before you go home?
