Plans to introduce angled parking on Hunter Street Newcastle have been met with opposition.
The Hunter Commuter Council says a similar proposal was rejected during the last term of Newcastle council because of it’s impacts.
The group says angled parking would hinder buses and create traffic congestion in other parts of the city
They claim the proposal is contrary to the Hunter Street revitalisation plans, saying it would cut out a dedicated bus lane, while the closure of the rail line into Newcastle would create the need for an extra 200 bus movements per day.
