New Warriewood car park eases pressure

The opening of the ground floor section of

the new Warriewood commuter car park

last month has already eased pressure on

parking and traffic in Mona Vale.

Around 200 undercover car spaces at

street level are being utilised daily by bus

commuters, including B-Line passengers,

following months of construction adjacent to

Warringah Rugby Park.

Transport NSW reports weather delays are

largely to blame for the delay in completing the

top deck of the car park, which will accommodate

an additional 150 cars per day when construction

is expected to be finished in May.

Residents reported some parking issues at

Mona Vale in recent months, with residents

from neighbouring suburbs using the Mona

Vale hub parking and surrounds while

Warriewood remained under construction.

Movie support

Iconic Aussie actor Bryan

Brown and the awardwinning

cast of his ‘Palm

Beach’ movie project head

into pre-production this

month minus the $25,000

in financial assistance they

asked from Northern Beaches

Council to help fund the

project after councilors

wiped out their request.

However, the team will

still benefit from the

goodwill of locals, with

Council awarding $20,000

worth of in-kind support

to cover parking and the

waiving of location fees for

the potential blockbuster,

which is expected to figure

in Australian Film Awards

(AFI) nominations after its

release in 2019.

The movie, starring

Brown, Sam Neill, Greta

Scacchi and Jacqueline

McKenzie, will be directed

by Brown’s wife

and fellow award-winning

actor Rachel Ward. Brown

will co-produce.
