Park and Ride cuts pol­lu­tion

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Letters And Opinion - David Spencer Der­ing Close, Bridge

The let­ter from Su­san Kil­czewski [Gazette, Jan­uary 3] about re­quir­ing more in­ner city car park­ing spa­ces misses the point, and that is that the growth of car traf­fic will al­ways out­grow the avail­able in­ner city park­ing spa­ces, which is why Park and Ride be­came the norm for many large towns and cities.

While it is likely that an in­crease in park­ing spa­ces will be needed for P&R in the fu­ture, the present sys­tem pro­vides all-day shop­ping for a very rea­son­able £3.50, with as many trips to and from the car as the user re­quires. And with­out any in­crease in in­ner city pol­lu­tion!
