For years, parking in the suburbs of Johannesburg has been regulated by a combination of meters and informal car guards, while in the CBD and Braamfontein a more rigorous system – policed by parking marshals – has ruled for some time. Now their dominion has suddenly embraced Parkhurst as well – and it’s spreading.
The people of Parkhurst are very unhappy, especially the traders, because the new system is limited to the two streets where all the businesses are, namely 4th Avenue and 6th Street. There is no public participation; the infrastructure is inadequate; pavements and kerbs are in a bad way; and the system takes no account of pedestrian crossings, disabled parking bays, loading bays and parking for cyclists.
