Parking for Civic Centre Events
Ryde Council's occupancy of the main building at the Civic Centre is coming to an end. At this stage usage of the Hall is not affected - but it does produce opportunities and challenges with regard to parking.
There is room for three buses to park while students are at the hall - any more "staying" buses would have to offload students and seek longer term parking on the nearby streets. Up to three more buses can be offloading/onloading students in the same area . They will probably need to back out to the roundabout at the entrance of the carpark.
THE EISTEDDFOD WILL HAVE A TRAFFIC CONTROLLER IN THE PARKING AREA during the Choral and Instrumental Ensembles events DIRECTING THE MANOEVRES.
Suggested direction of approach by buses would be from Blaxland Road proceeding behind the Civic Centre and turning into the parking area.
Smaller vehicles bringing in equipment will hopefully be able to drive into the limited car parking area to the back of the hall to offload equipment.
Private cars should seek street parking - or more likely use the underground parking available at the Ryde Shopping Centre opposite the hall in Devlin Street.
