What does 'modes' of transport mean and what will happen to existing parking?

Basically 'modes' means 'types' of transport, ie public transport (buses, trains), private vehicles, bicycles, motorbikes/scooters, etc – other ways of getting around.

As part of RiverLink a comprehensive review (of how we manage public parking) will be undertaken by developing a Transitional Parking Plan to:

Transitional Parking Plan

  • manage and minimise the impact on public parking during construction
  • consider different parking user types and make the most of available car parks to suit these different needs
  • consider parking locations, how close they are to destinations, usage, and capacity
  • identify ways for people to reduce their dependency on cars by providing other transport modes.

Offsetting the impact with viable alternatives

When RiverLink construction is completed in 2027, around half of the Riverbank carparks will have been removed, as well as approximately 95 on-street carparks where the city and the river meet. The reduction of carparks will be offset by the way in which Riverlink is being designed. It will offer viable alternatives to using private vehicles, boosting the 'health' of the population, as well as the city - ensuring we’re meeting our commitments to sustainability and climate change. Flood risk exposure will still be present for the remaining Riverbank carparks and will require careful ongoing management.

Overall, RiverLink will have a significant positive impact on transport and traffic effects.
