Caravanners bound for Broken Hill can soon easily access the CBD, thanks to ‘Big Rig’ parking underway at Kintore Reserve.
Seven sealed long sites awaiting final touches will soon accommodate vehicles towing a caravan or those in a large motorhome.
The $300,000 council-funded initiative also introduces 32 standard vehicle sites. A dump point also allows for wastewater discharge.
Kintore Reserve faces Broken Hill Visitor Centre and is a five-minute stroll to the CBD and major touring attractions.
Council’s Chief Operations Officer, Anthony Misagh, said the project improves the city’s RV friendly credentials and will boost tourism in the CBD.
“Ideally we’ll see travellers taking advantage of it and wandering into the CBD to visit businesses in that area,” says Mr Misagh.
“We’ve said many times that we’re committed to revitalising the CBD, and hopefully this helps us move closer to that goal.”
