Parking on Beaumont Road

For the past few weeks a car has been parked in an unusual position on Beaumont Road. It has received a lot of publicity, especially on 1 April when the car was wrapped in cling film with a message ‘Worst parking ever’ attached to it. This was not an April Fools’ Day joke!

The car was parked there by a Quarry resident who wanted to try to slow down the speed of traffic on Beaumont Road by creating a ‘chicane’. The idea is that drivers are forced to wait for oncoming traffic.

It has divided opinion. Friends of Quarry would like to know what you think about it. Has this parked car affected you in some way? Do you think it would be a good idea to have a ‘build out’ on Beaumont Road to create a chicane, or is it an unnecessary hindrance to the flow of traffic?
