Other more apparent faults with the idea of a P&R at Elland Road is surely any P&R site could be buggered up (in terms of capacity and traffic wanting to go in and out) if there is say an evening match or an event (such as the annual Jehovahs Witness conferences) with take place during daytimes and require the use of the park and ride site and of course having a Saturday shoppers Park & Ride at Elland Road would be a no no on days that there are matches on? Surely the long derelict former plot of land on the corner of the A6110 Ring Road and A62 Geldard which was once home to Wallace Arnold and the short lived Route 2 car supermarket (vacant for at least a decade) would be a better site imo?Problem with P&R is...
Takes a couple of minutes to pull off your route and get parked
Takes another min to lock up and walk to bus stop
Takes 5 mins for the bus to come
Takes another min for the bus to get back on the route to town
By which time you are 9 or 10 mins behind where you would have been in the car, so you have to hope the bus is going to be damn quick...
Is it, in fact, another grey plastic and white cement render design? :down:looks pretty bog stand public sector rubbish most practices have been churning out for the last few years, my old firm was in the running for this job........... no doubt their design would have look pretty similar
Any more renders to look at?
A similar structure is being implemented in Harrogate. While the main station is moving to a huge new building on the edge of town, there will be a smaller base in the centre.When the new Elland Road police station is developed does this mean that Leeds City Centre would completely lack a police station (not counting the British Transport Police on New Station Street)? Surely a police station in the city centre through a retention of Bridewell police station would be a neccessity for covering crime in the city centre as well as being the obvious base for basing city centre foot patrols. Still good to finally see some development in the Elland Road area.
No. A mid-rise or small high-rise, but the days of 60 storey towers outside London are gone.The big advantage of the new Police station at Elland Road means that Miillgarth police station in the city centre is ripe for redevelopment. Could Millgarth Tower rise from the ashes of the current station? Time will tell.
