Traffic, pedestrian, cyclist and parking info

  • Scarborough

Traffic, parking, pedestrian and cyclist access changes are in place at Scarborough beachfront while works are underway until early 2018.

The Esplanade has reopened from Brighton Road to Manning Street, and Scarborough Beach Road is also open. Vehicles can now access the foreshore from Brighton Road, Scarborough Beach Road, Manning Street and Reserve Street. 

There are still changes in place for pedestrians accessing the beach.

  • Access to the beach is via the far northern carpark, the path to the north of Sunset Hill, through the east west pedestrian path at the clock tower, and at the end of Brighton Road past C Breeze cafe. 

Carparks along Scarborough Beach will close for short periods of time while they are refurbished.

Carparks currently open:

  • Northern lower carpark -  entry via the northern upper carpark or ramp in front of Plakas
  • Northern upper carpark - entry from Reserve or Manning streets
  • Southern lower carpark - entry from Brighton Road
  • Parallel street parking available along The Esplanade south

Carparks closed for refurbishment: 

  • Southern upper carpark - due to open before Christmas (small section in front of pool to open next year)

Parking is also available underneath the Rendezvous Hotel (paid) or in the Wilson carpark on Manning Street (bays are free for the first two hours or $5 all day parking). 

A detailed map is available for download.

Access to local businesses and residential buildings will remain in place at all times although there may be some slight adjustments to pathways and access points throughout the works period. Follow the signs.
