From 1 December 2020, 44 roads within the City of Boroondara will be impacted by new Department of Transport regulations turning clearways into tow-away zones.

If you park your vehicle on a main road, make sure you check the nearby signage to ensure it is safe to do so and avoid having your vehicle towed. 

The new regulations are part of a VicRoads initiative to change clearways within 20km of Melbourne’s CBD into tow-away zones to ensure traffic moves freely during peak times.

Check the full map of impacted roads on the Vicroads website. Please ensure you check signage for specific clearway times, as they may have changed since you last parked at the location.

Parking fines

As of 1 July 2021, financial penalties apply for parking in clearways.

These include:

  • $182.00 fine for parking in a clearway, and
  • $361.00 vehicle release fee if vehicle is towed (paid to the Department of Transport).

Please note, both the City of Boroondara and the Department of Transport may issue parking fines for vehicles parked in clearways. Always check your notice to see where to pay your fine, or contact us for assistance using the details on our Contact us page.

Pay your parking fine

Vehicles parked in clearway zones may be towed. All towing of vehicles is managed by the Department of Transport. For more information on clearways, tow-away zones, how to collect a towed vehicle, and any applicable fines, visit the Tow away zones page on the Vicroads website.
