Car Park Now Open
The new Harrow Street multideck car park opened to the public on Wednesday 31 July 2019.
Workers, shoppers and visitors to Box Hill Central now benefit from a net increase of 271 parking spaces in the immediate vicinity which will help ease traffic congestion and save time looking for a car park.
Key features of the five-level car park include 562 car parking bays including nine accessible parking bays, 12 bicycle racks, 12 motorcycle spaces, 4 electric vehicle charging stations (located on the lower ground level) and CCTV cameras throughout.
With the opening of the new car park, the Cambridge Street Car Park has ceased operating as a Council-owned car park.
Care Park, one of Australia’s largest parking operators, has been engaged to operate the new Harrow Street Car Park on behalf of Council.
The operational arrangements are as follows:
- Vehicle entry / exit is from John Street
- Pedestrian entry / exit is from Harrow Street

Ticketing and payment are via Care Park’s Auto Pay system. Upon entry to the car park, customers press the gate control to obtain a ticket and gain entry. Before returning to their car, customers must pay for their ticket at an Autopay station located on the ground floor. Validated tickets are then inserted into a reader at the exit and the boom gate will lift automatically. Each Autopay location is connected to Care Park’s car park monitoring system which provides 24-hour service and contact with a Care Park staff member to handle any payment or car park equipment issues.
Car park rates are displayed at the front entrance. More information, including a locational map, can be found on the Care Park’s website at www.carepark.com.au.
Some further works was being conducted during August and September to finalise internal fit-out and integrate the building with the external environment.
We are now pleased to announce as of late September 2019 that the following works has been completed:
- paving of the undercover forecourt area near the pedestrian entrance on Harrow Street
- redevelopment of Pioneer Park into an attractive green space, with new paths, landscaped areas and additional bench seating
- completion of internal spaces for community group tenancy.
The following works are expected to be completed by the end of December 2019:
- signalised pedestrian crossing which will be positioned near the corner of Harrow Street and Station Street, Box Hill
Council has appreciated the cooperation and support of local traders and residents during the construction phase. The final result is a much-needed community asset that supports the important role Box Hill Central plays as one of Melbourne’s key activity centres.
