Bus zones relocated temporarily

While footpath improvements take place along Brook Street in Muswellbrook, Council seeks road users’ cooperation to use alternate parking locations.  Temporary No Stopping signs have been put in place.   
Street parking is expected to be restored at the completion of the current construction works, towards the end of October 2017.


Bus Zone and No Parking parking signs

There is no stopping or parking in Bus Zones

You cannot park within 20 metres before a Bus Stop unless there are signs that permit parking, this is for the safety of bus passengers. You must not stop on a length of road to which a No Stopping sign applies, this is for the safety of other vehicles. Noncompliance may incur a penalty of $236.

If you have any questions call the Project Manager, Kellie Scholes 6549 3756.

From 25 July 2016 you can register to receive your rates and water notices by email. All you have to do is submit the below form.
