A Coach Company from Denbighshire is warning that the bad parking of motorists in the village of Llandegla is affecting their ability to provide their service. GHA Coaches is experiencing access problems through the village as a result of vehicles being double-parked throughout the area and effectively blocking the road.
The Coach Company has appealed to the public to park more responsibly, and North Wales Police have also given the coach firm its full support and are also urging local motorists to be more considerate in the parking practices.
A public meeting was held recently where the matter was discussed. The coach company met with local residents, councillors and the police to try and resolve the issue. The main problem arises from motorists parking on the side of the street which prevents the large single-decker coaches from turning around.
There is a lack of parking areas in the village so motorists often park on the street when they are visiting shops, or embarking on a walk out in the area. However when the street becomes blocked with cars, the drivers of the coaches are forced to reverse the vehicle out, which is not only difficult, but potentially dangerous. The driver will then warn the service behind him/her that the road is blocked, and the next coach simply won’t stop at the village.
It is hoped that by raising awareness of the issue, more motorists will think twice before double parking in the village of Llandegla.
So they should! This could ruin someone’s business within minutes. The media always jump the gun!
Fair enough. But why does Solus Coaches insist on parking illegally on Vauxhall, London residential streets where coach parking has been banned?
I hope organisations will boycott this company until they are willing to park legally. Believe me, it’s horrible to open your bedroom window to a gust of diesel fumes and a noisy coach engine.
