What does 'modes' of transport mean and what will happen to existing parking?

Basically 'modes' means 'types' of transport, ie public transport (buses, trains), private vehicles, bicycles, motorbikes/scooters, etc – other ways of getting around.

Transitional Parking Plan

  • Manage and minimise the impact on public parking during construction 
  • Consider different parking user types and make the most of available car parks for all

Offsetting the impact with viable alternatives

Once RiverLink construction is completed in 2027, a number the Riverbank carparks will have been removed, as well as approximately 95 on-street car parks where the city and the river meet. The reduction of car parks will be off-set by the way in which Riverlink is being designed to offer viable alternatives to using private vehicles, boosting the 'health' of the population, as well as the city, by ensuring we're meeting our commitments to sustainability and climate change.  

Overall, RiverLink will have significant positive transport and traffic effects once completed.
