On-street Parking - NEW!

I had to pinch myself to see if I was dreaming - there's a new section of parking in Hill Street!! In recent years we've lost so many spaces because the Powers That Be seem to hate personal transport and want us to all add to the congestion driving around and around looking for those elusive spaces, pavement widening schemes like Conway St for example........ so it's a welcome surprise to actually find new parking. I'm even more amazed because I thought that the stretch there was part of a cycle route scheme against the traffic flow. I'm actually wondering if the Constable knows about it :)

Well done to the Parish of St.Helier, common sense at last. Hill Street used to be two lanes there, when traffic could turn off to the right by the church, so there was obviously room for parking as you have now finally proved.
