Waitrose Red Houses extends free customer parking


The upper car park at Waitrose Red Houses is to become a disk zone shopper's car park.

The Red Houses branch, in partnership with the States of Jersey Transport and Technical Services Department, is amending the car park rulings so that customers no longer have to use parking paycards and will provide an additional 34 one-hour overflow parking spaces.

To assist customers in the run up to the Christmas and the New Year, temporary signage will be positioned shortly to communicate the change of use. More permanent signage will be put in place in the New Year.

Peter Slater, branch manager of Waitrose Red Houses, said that this amendment to the current system was in response to customer demand for increased and more convenient parking in the area.

“It’s great to be able to provide additional parking for our customers and for other businesses around us. It is hoped that more permanent improvements and changes will happen in the New Year and will include a new trolley bay and ramp to allow easier access.

“As we approach the busy Christmas and New Year period, having the opportunity to provide an additional 34 overflow parking spaces will be a huge benefit to all.”

Yep - well done Waitrose, I don't think! Now knock down that damned wall on your own car park so those exiting can see the on-coming traffic from the traffic lights and don't sit with their noses half out when no one can let them out because the queue to get onto the underground car park blocks the road the other way. Let anyone coming through the traffic lights actually get through. That junction was BLOCKED so many times over Christmas. AND PLEASE stop the idiot shoppers who are too lazy to use the TWO official crossings and instead stand in the middle of a very busy road looking pathetic expecting drivers to stop to stop for them. Do they think that is the safest thing to do! THIS IS BECOMING ONE BIG NIGHTMARE to get past at peak times. Msr Le Connetable POSB, PLEASE NOTE not everyone wants to go anywhere near b****y Waitrose. We actually want to get through what is already a very busy junction (think of the Nos 15, 22 and 12 buses that have to negotiate it too).
