New parking bays up and running

Some new parking bays are now available to use on George Street.

The three spaces, which were previously for use by the doctors and disabled drivers now have a one-hour restriction and are for use by anyone.

These are in addition to the five new bays which were recently created on Stevens Street. These also have a one-hour restriction, although one of the bays has a sign saying 20 minutes which is being replaced shortly.

Whilst the white line people were out, couldn't they of done the keep clear markings on the main road which quite clearly aren't clear! Also, the no entry sign has disappeared from chapel street so drivers coming from Massey street are turning up a one way street the wrong way.

A mention has been made about one way streets. Steven St is one way but the number cars trying to come out onto London Road is amazing. Albeit it
Is signposted as you enter the road people parking their cars in either the Bubble room/shops and apartments above shops just think they can turn up
the wrong way to exit the road. Why isn't there a sign situated opposite the parking area to remind people that it is One Way?

If we did an audit on spaces gained and spaces lost, I sadly fear that the overall result would be a net loss.
Can we not bring back to life the concept of a large car park? It does seem to have slipped off the radar?

I know a good space, at the side of the Festival Hall and Doctors, it could have gardens, seats, benches etc. as well

Hi Jon,
always good to see a tongue in a cheek!
Do you know if there are there any up-to-date costings on possibly putting in a car park where you suggest?
