The hourly rate at the Westralia Square has almost doubled.Car parking charges in Perth have hit a new high with Westralia Square now slugging customers $21, almost double the hourly rate it was before.
The one-hour rate for the car park, which is operated by Secureparking, was $11 before the most recent price hike.
The full day maximum now comes at a cost of $66, up from $44, while a two-hour park will cost $36 and up to four hours $46.
A 6PR Radio listener called the station to tell them about the rates and sent in photographs of the rate card outside the car park.
The rates seem to be the result of a recent change as a search online for Secureparking’s Westralia Square rates show charges which are much cheaper.
The company has been contacted for comment.
The Secureparking rates are significantly higher than some other car parking operators in the same area.
Wilson Parking’s rates for 225 St George’s Terrace are $41 for a full day. The same rate applies to their car parks on Murray Street and Hay Street with Wellington Street available for the whole day for $19.
Meanwhile car parks operated by the City of Perth are generally cheaper, although a 12 hour stay at the Concert Hall car park will cost you $25 while the rate for the Convention Centre is $32.
