Port Delivers Key Stage of Parking Promise 29/08/2014
The Port of Cromarty Firth has revealed that it has fulfilled a key stage in its pledge to create new parking facilities in Invergordon.

In a bid to understand the root cause of parking issues that can occur within areas of Invergordon during peak periods of operation at the Invergordon Service Base, the Port undertook a survey of the companies that utilise the Base, examining what the shift patterns and transportation habits are for the hundreds of port workers using the facilities. 

The results of this survey were presented at an open evening late last year, where it emerged that a number of factors had contributed to create a parking headache for residents neighbouring the Port. These being a combination of poor public transport services, a lack of residents-only enforceable parking zones, lack of double yellow lines and a lack of acknowledgement by certain Service Base users of their role to play in policing and managing their employees, i.e. through park & ride schemes.

Bob Buskie, CEO for the Port of Cromarty Firth said “I am delighted to let the Invergordon community know that we’re delivering on our promise to them to look at creating additional parking facilities.  Whilst the majority of Service Base workers are not employed by the Port of Cromarty Firth, we see this as us helping to improve the situation on behalf of our neighbours, as part of the wider parking picture in Invergordon.“

“We lodged a planning application to use the railway sidings for temporary parking, which has now opened up for parking use.  The next stage sees us currently finalising on the purchase of land at the ‘old coal yard’, Clyde Street.  It is hoped that the coal yard site will be available for parking from mid September.”
