In Woden, there are around 3,400 surface car parking spaces, of which around 400 are privately owned but with public access. These figures do not include the Westfield retail centre parking spaces.

In Tuggeranong, there are around 800 publicly provided car parking spaces in the town centre, with a further 700 provided by the private sector for public use. These figures exclude the parking spaces provided by the Tuggeranong Hyperdome.

There are around 1500 off-street surface parking spaces provided in Gungahlin Town Centre, of which about 850 are provided by the Territory, with the balance provided by private lessees. Of the publicly provided spaces, about 400 are formed, with the balance informal spaces on unleased land.

(2) In terms of utilisation, a parking survey of the City and town centres was undertaken. The approximate utilisation figures for each of the major centres are as follows:











Note: These figures include both publicly provided and private for public car parking spaces.

(3) Parking spaces are generally provided by developers of sites and as part of the road network in residential, commercial and industrial developments by the development industry. The only new parking spaces which the Territory has constructed in recent years are those on and near the Acton futsal slab, west of Commonwealth Avenue in the City. The average cost per space was around $4,000, but this included the construction of a new section of road (Corkhill Street). The estimated cost of surface parking spaces is in the order of $2,500 to $3,500, depending on site conditions.
