Reader letter: Tram plans would need huge car park

editorial image

I am in favour of the tram, but one thing that does concern me about the mention of the tram coming to Giltbrook is, where are they going to put the car park?

If the tram does come to Giltbrook, it is going to need the building of a massive car-park, this is because Giltbrook would then become the westerly terminus of the line, attracting vehicles from miles around. The Ikea car park cannot even cope with the present traffic at busy times, so that would not be an option.

It would therefore need many acres of greenbelt land converting to tarmac, and as far as I am concerned, that would not be an option either, so can someone please tell me where the car park is going to be?
