Artists impression of new Rolleston town centre

As part of the Rolleston town centre upgrade, a number of loading and car park areas are proposed.

The car parks have been deliberately located around the edge of the town centre to encourage visitors to move around on foot. Accessible parking is proposed in multiple locations across the town centre to minimise travel distances for physically impaired drivers. Detailed designs of the proposed town centre development are available for the public to view. For more information and to have your say.

Car parks
There is a main car park south of the development which will provide the majority of parking for the town centre.

Car park two is located off Tennyson Street to the rear of the upcoming shops. This will provide 44 car parks. Car park three is located on the south of the site, just off Tennyson Street. It will provide 130 to 140 parking spaces with the final number being dependent upon the number of accessible parks and parent parks that are provided.

On-street, right angled parking bays are proposed in all areas. The bays are designed to be 2.6m wide and 5.0m deep, in accordance with District Plan standard.

Bus stops
There is a bus stop on Tennyson Street, which will be directly across from the new Te Ara Ātea Library and Community Centre. The indented bus bays and loading bays are 2.5m wide with lengths of 13.5m and 12m respectively. The loading bays will service the retail and commercial operators.
