OFF STREET SERVICING FOR SHOPS: OPERATIONS IN A LARGE SERVICE AREA

The use made of a large service area shared by about thirty shops and offices was studied and the following conclusions drawn:- two features of the service area reduced its effectiveness: the inclusion of the centrally-placed garage block and the use of the area by private cars belonging to staff employed in the premises served by the area and to others having no business in any of these premises. (only half of all visiting vehicles were making trade or service calls to the premises served by the area). Without the parked cars (many of which displayed permits allowing them unrestricted access to the area) the area would be satisfactory for vehicles up to 15 metres in length except in the vicinity of the garage block, where manoeuvring difficulties would still occur with vehicles over 11 metres in length.
