Car Parking Difficulties - 3rd October 2016

Posted on Sun-02-Oct-2016 14:50

Hi everyone, we know the car parking at the club has been difficult of late due to the level crossing works on Heatherdale road. The contractors are using one of the offices in our building so many of the car parks are taken up by their own staff and contractors. According to the levelcrossings website works are continuing for the rest of 2016 and into early 2017. The good news is the car park next door to the club is open (although only half of the car parks are currently available.)

Please see the website below for more information, and alternative parking. We've found from 4:30-5pm that parking becomes available. Parking should be back to normal starting 2017.

Thanks, MTC
