Loading Bays

Goods Vehicles Loading Bays are white 'bays' marked with the words 'Loading only' and a sign with the white on blue 'trolley' symbol. An adjacent sign will show the times when the bay is in operation. If no times are indicated the bay is in operation at all times. Vehicles may not park here if they are not loading or unloading.

 

Loading Restrictions

Loading Restrictions are shown by yellow lines on the kerb or at the edge of the carriageway. Double yellow lines on the kerb mean no loading or unloading at any time. Single yellow lines on the kerb mean no loading during the times shown on the adjacent sign.

 

Bus Stop Clearways

Bus Stop Clearways you must not stop in a bus stop clearway during its period of operation. The period of operation will be shown on the adjoining signage. Buses must only use stops to allow passengers to board and alight vehicles. Bus Stands are provided for buses to park for longer than the period taken for boarding and alighting, to maintain a timetable or to change crews. No other vehicle should park within the Bus Stand during its period of operation.

 

Pay & Display Bays - To use these bays you must purchase a ticket and display it clearly in the windscreen of the vehicle or pay using the RingGo App. Disabled badge holders may park free of charge in most car parks (check local signage)

Where there is an upright sign, there is a mandatory prohibition of stopping during the times shown.
