164667Photo #164667Trumpington Park 'n' Ride site.

Two columns each of 16 toastracks plus 8 toastracks in between the two columns. Each toastrack can accommodate 8 cycles.

That's a total of (16 + 16 + 8) * 8 = 320 cycle parking places.

These fit into 28 car parking spaces.

So that is 320 / 28 = 11.4 cycle spaces per car space.

The racks a quite well fixed down with several bolts on each rail. It's a shame to see them not being used but then again the car parking is pretty empty too.

163422Photo #163422A shopper is forced to walk the narrow gap between this van and a high hedge.

This is the main link for pedestrians between the Retail Park and the Beehive Centre. It is also a shared use cycle route leading to the toucan crossing.

Just before I took this there was another van parked immediately in front and it looks to me like they were queueing for the food van just out of shot on the left.

I didn't dare try talking to the drivers, and I even felt sheepish getting a photo. It's a horrible area.

I think the only way of stopping this is adding some form of physical barrier to prevent the footway being driven onto.
