There will be about five parking spaces and some cycle parking allocated.There will be 70 carts at the depot with staff of four per cart. That's a potential 275 extra parking spaces needed in the streets around the depot. Guess where there isn't any residents parking permitting at the moment Fort, Reverdy, Balaclava and Alma. Looks like we could be getting some early morning parking outside our bedrooms.
Thanks for that - it seems like there may be some additional pressure on local parking, but I would hope that a number of the workers would arrive by public transport, share lifts, etc. Presumably when the site was used as bus depot there were also plenty of workers so the difference may not be that signficiant? (Although I suppose they got there on the bus!).
Does anybody know when the new depot will come into operation? I'll be keenly observing the parking situation on Alma Grove to see if it makes any difference.
At three am today again, there was a refuse vehicle parked near the subway at Driscoll House, with it's engine running and lights flashing. You could hear the steady drone of the engine in bartholomew street..it's possible the driver may not be aware in his cab the the noise travels over, or indeed that the engine noise would not be noticed with over traffic going by, But the traffic ebbs and flows but the steady relentless drone of an engine is more disturbing. Last week I phoned the council switchboard at about 3.30 and the operator logged the call, today I could not be bothered to go downstairs and phone so just found some earplugs!
Heaven help the residents who live near
Mandela way with 50 plus vehicles queing to get in..
