At 8.40 this morning I took a photo of ten cars in the $300,000, 100 space, Park and Ride car park opposite the entrance to EPiC.
That means a mere ten less cars on Northbourne Avenue, and MORE cars on the congested 3km stretch of Flemington Road from Well Station Drive to the Park and Ride and the Federal Highway.
If the Park and Ride were moved 3 km to Well Station Road it would save participating commuters 6 km of driving – worth about $4 – each day. It would get them to Civic several minutes quicker because they would zoom through that section in the transit lane instead of at 20 km/h in the general traffic. And it would reduce congestion on both Flemington Road and Northbourne Avenue.
