State Square Underground Car Park

State Square Underground Car Park is an NT Government Project.

Current Works

Excavation works for the construction of the new underground car park at State Square in Darwin’s CBD will start on Wednesday 29 August.

State Square underground car park aims to relocate all of the existing surface car parks underground, to allow further development of the State Square precinct, free up green space and reduce heat. The facility will house 450 car parks including public parking and have a dual role as a Cyclone Shelter with the ability to shelter 600 people.

By moving the existing car parking underground, more space will be created within the State Square precinct for landscaping, walkways, cycle paths, shade, cooling water features and relaxing/social areas.

The Northern Territory Government is committed to transforming Darwin’s CBD into a tropical, world-renowned destination, boosting tourism and enhancing Darwin’s liveability.
