A COMMUNITY meeting has been held to discuss the ongoing issue of parking congestion in the Keiraville residential streets around the University of Wollongong.
The State MP for Keira Ryan Park met with residents after years of complaints over congested streets.
“For years now the Keiraville residents have been complaining that things are getting worse and worse. People are finding it impossible to negotiate through their streets because they are lined with parked vehicles, Mr Park said.
“The problem exists because of the lack of infrastructure for the students to utilise when attending the University of Wollongong. That is why since the election I have been calling for the introduction of a Metro bus similar to what they have in Sydney that has proved to be very successful.
Mr Park said he would like to see the introduction of a Metro Bus that would pick students up from the southern suburbs of the Illawarra, such as Dapto and then make its way into the University with only one additional stop at Figtree.
Also at the meeting were representatives from the University of Wollongong.
