Airport carpark upgrade

An additional 100 carparking spaces will be provided at the Ballina Byron Gateway Airport as part of a signficant carpark upgrade project. 

The Airport Boulevard project has included realignment of Southern Cross Drive, which will now enable more carparking spaces to be constructed at the airport.

Other features of the carpark upgrade include dedicated ground transport and rental carparking areas, installation of solar PV system over part of the long term carpark to support the energy needs of the airport, a new simplified carpark management system including boom gates, and landscaping.

Work is now underway, with crews now establishing the site and enacting the traffic management plan. 

The airport carpark upgrade is expected to be completed in December 2021 (weather and site conditions permitting).

Council is urging the community to arrive at the airport earlier to avoid being inconvenienced by traffic delays and parking changes. 

The following traffic and parking arrangements are now in place:

•    The short term carpark is now closed to the public.
•    Public parking is temporarily located in the long term carpark.
•    The passenger drop-off zone has been moved to the shuttle bus parking area. 
•    All taxis, buses and ride share vehicles need to use the area currently marked ‘Taxi Rank’ to drop off and pick up passengers.
