Chains and posts have been situated across the car parks to stop cars being driven through bays.
What happens if I use a handheld mobile device whilst driving?

Can I cross the road anywhere on site?
No, all staff and visitors must use pedestrian crossings when crossing roads on site.
Staff found not to be using pedestrian crossings may face disciplinary action which will result in a loss of bonus payment.
Rows are coned off in the evenings, why is this?
Rows B, C, D, and E are coned off between 3.30 pm and 6 pm to create a safe one way exit route for staff to exit site during peak times.
Why are some pedestrian crossings locked closed during peak hours?
To allow a smooth traffic flow and to avoid congestion where possible on local road networks, the barriers are closed and staff are to use the central barrier located by phase 6 Home. This reduces the number of occasions that traffic has to stop, which in return reduces traffic queues.
