A truck stop implements a new parking system


With the support of the local council, a busy North Melbourne service station has implemented a new system to help ensure interstate truckers have a place to park and rest for the night.

BP Epping introduced new parking restrictions this month, in conjunction with Whittlesea City Council.

This follows ongoing issues with local trucks parking up and leaving for the night, which meant interstate drivers often had nowhere to stop.

The new parking restrictions came into effect on Monday, April 11. Now the entire site has 2 hour parking, with long distance drivers able to register their need for a longer break with the customer service representative on duty.

“BP is pleased to have worked closely with Whittlesea City Council to put parking restrictions in place at BP Epping earlier this month,” a BP spokesperson said.

“The parking restrictions, backed up by 24/7 municipal patrols, will help ensure that reliable parking spaces are available for Australian interstate truck drivers to rest.

“BP will review the changes after an eight-week period and seek to apply the learnings to other sites across the country, where possible.”
