Shared Use Bays

 In some locations, mainly within the city centre, some parking bays have been designated for two different users at certain times. These users include disabled badge holders, taxis, goods vehicles, motorcycles, permit holders and pay and display ticket holders.

The bays will have 2 separate signs on the same signpost and each individual sign will advise which type of motorist is allowed to park in the bay at a specified time.

There will be no wording on the road surface due to the change in the restrictions and times.

Please see copies of the signs of the various dual bays within the city:

The shared use sign designated for taxis and disabled badges. The first part of the sign is yellow with the no waiting symbol and states ‘No waiting 6.30pm – 8am except taxis’. Underneath is the standard disabled sign which has a picture of the disabled wheelchair symbol and states ‘Disabled badge holders only 8am – 6.30pm’
