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. Please ensure you check signage for specific clearway times as they may have changed since you last parked at the location.
As of 1st December 2020 and until 30 June 2021, the financial penalties for parking in clearways apply. These include:
- $361.00 vehicle release fee after towing (paid to the Department of Transport)
- $165.00 fine for parking in a clearway (If issued, is to be paid to Council)
If you do not collect your towed vehicle within 5 days, you will incur a further $15.20 storage fee for every day after that date until you collect it.
If your car has been towed you should contact Nationwide Towing & Transport on 13 48 69.
Council will continue to issue infringement notices for vehicles parked in clearways until 30 June 2021. From 1 July 2021, the Department of Transport will be responsible for the issuing the infringement in addition to towing the vehicle.
