Following the post yesterday about the problem of cars leaving the area after evening events and Westside Business Improvement District introducing a temporary traffic management plan, we would like to give you an update.
In conjunction with the City Council, Barclaycard Arena, and QPark,  a measured plan was initiated by the BID to reduce the time of cars leaving car parks, after the John Legend concert at the Barclaycard Arena.
Recently some cars had experienced delays that were upwards of three hours, but due to the BID’s trial scheme, that time was down to just three-quarters of an hour. We are now looking to tweak the plan to further improve on that time.
This is a marvellous example of joint working and intelligent thinking by Westside BID Chairman Sam Lawrence, Director John McDermott and others involved.
If you have any questions regarding this plan, or any other issues, please feel free to email at or contact the BID office on 0121 439 1923.
