Hackney Wick Controlled Parking Zone?
The pedestrian gates for the construction workers on the Olympic Site will open in White Post Lane in a few weeks.
This means that thousands of Olympic staff will be arriving at Hackney Wick Station daily (yes Sundays as well) and make their way to the entrance.
But it will also mean that some will come by car. Like it or not some people are petrolheads, and do not like travelling by public transport.
Hackney Council & Tower Hamlets Council are considering imposing a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) across the whole area - in order to dissuade people from bringing their cars into the Wick. Nothing is confirmed yet, and it may not even happen, but in the meantime, just to be prepared - what do you all think?
Any more questions?
