Suncorp Stadium (Lang Park traffic area)

Suncorp Stadium (formerly known as Lang Park) is the largest sporting and event stadium in Brisbane. It is regularly used and attracts crowds over 52,000 people. As it is set in suburban Paddington the Lang Park traffic area was created to ensure that local residents could access on street parking during events.

During events at Suncorp Stadium a 15-minute parking limit applies on all roads from midday to 10pm, unless signed otherwise. Signs advising the 15-minute parking limit are located on the boundary of the Lang Park Traffic Area at every entry point. Legislation has enabled the area to be defined without the need for every individual street in the Parking Control area to carry a sign advising this restriction. 

For information on public transport during events, visit the TransLink website.

If you live within the Lang Park traffic area, you can apply for a parking permit.

Residential parking permits allow residents to park unrestricted on the street in their area, with certain conditions.

Permit holders:

  • are exempt from the signed traffic area time limit when parking on streets listed on their permit
  • must clearly display their permit on the vehicle's windscreen or dashboard
  • are able to park in metered parking bays signed 'resident permit excepted' (free of charge with no time restriction)
  • may also park in other areas signed 'resident permit excepted' (with no time restriction)

Permits do not allow residents to park in designated statutory restricted areas, such as:

  • clearway zones
  • loading zones
  • no stopping zones
  • bus zones
  • taxi zones

To help Brisbane motorists easily identify when they’ve parked within the Lang Park Traffic Area, Brisbane City Council is trialling new high visibility Traffic Area Reminder Signage. The additional signage is located underneath street signs and will complement the existing signage located on roads leading into these areas.

The six-month trial is in response to a recommendation of the Parking Taskforce and will help make parking easier for Brisbane residents and visitors.

Council will monitor the effectiveness of the signs throughout the six-month trial and, if successful, will look to progressively roll out similar signage to other Traffic and Parking Control Areas across Brisbane.
