The public set down road includes six accessible spaces located under the Skywalk that have been clearly sign-posted and marked with the international symbol for access. These spaces remain in this location post September 2012 and allow drivers and passengers with disabilities to park for up to 30 minutes, i.e the bays may be used for both pick-up and set-down. Valid Australian Disability Parking Permits and valid Queensland Disability Parking Permits must be displayed on the vehicle at all times. If you do not have the required permit then call (07) 3406 3261 between 8am and 3pm Monday to Friday to discuss arrangements.
In all cases drivers of vehicles that do not display a valid Australian Disability Parking Permit or a valid Queensland Disability Parking Permit must identify themselves to the parking control officer who has the discretionary capability to allow people with disabilities but who are not passengers in a vehicle displaying a valid Permit to utilise these spaces. If the correct permit is not displayed then fines may apply.
From September 2012 the designated public pick-up area will be located adjacent to the Long Term Car Park building and will be accessed via Dryandra Road. This facility will offer 30 minutes of free parking after which parking rates apply. Accessible parking bays are provided within this facility which will be accessed by an accessible path of travel utilising the elevated Skywalk and the lifts provided.
Two special use accessible parking spaces are also available on the taxi drop-off road. These spaces are closer to the terminal but are only available with prior approval. If you require the use of one of these special use bays then please call (07) 3406 3261 between 8am to 3pm Monday to Friday and at least 24 business hours in advance to discuss arrangements. If prior arrangements are not made then fines may apply. Seating areas for waiting and resting are provided next to set-down areas offering some protection from sun, rain and prevailing winds.
Drivers are allowed to pick-up arriving passengers on the Departures/ Pick-up Road in front of the terminal. Passengers must be ready for an immediate pick up or drop off.
To avoid congestion on the Departures/Pick-Up Road there is a Pick-Up Waiting Area located beside the long-term car park that is a dedicated ‘waiting area’ for drivers whose passengers are not yet ready to be collected. The first 30 minutes are free in the Pick-Up Waiting Area, which can be accessed from Dryandra Road.
For more information and a detailed map please see www.bne.com.au/pick-up
Drivers dropping off and picking-up passengers with mobility limitations can continue to use the current drop off and pick up road.
There are a number of ‘accessible’ parking bays on this road which allow drivers to park for up to 30 minutes and assist passengers with disabilities to and from the terminal.
Passengers with disabilities who use mobility aids or wheelchairs should use the lifts up to the Skywalk rather than the travelators.
