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, check the nearby signage to make sure 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 map of impacted roads on the VicRoads website-external site. Ensure you check signage for specific clearway times, as they may have changed since you last parked at the location.
As of 1 July 2021, there are financial penalties for parking in clearways.
- $185 fine for parking in a clearway
- $361 vehicle release fee if the vehicle is towed (paid to the Department of Transport).
Both the City of Boroondara and the Department of Transport may issue parking fines for vehicles parked in clearways. Check your notice to find out how to pay your fine, or contact us for support using the details on our Contact us page.
Vehicles parked in clearway zones may be towed. The Department of Transport manages all towing of vehicles.
