Drivers stuck AGAIN as queues form at exit to West Orchards car park

Drivers reported being stuck for more than 40 minutes


Drivers have once again been facing frustrating queues this afternoon after gridlock hit the exit to a shopping centre car park.

One reader said it took him 40 minutes just to get out of West Orchards car park.

It’s the second time in two days that huge traffic issues have hit the area and comes as shoppers descend on the city centre to do some Christmas gift-buying.

Cars could be seen this afternoon queuing all the way up the spiral exit, inching forward out to the road.

Signs in the lift of the shopping centre warn drivers that they could face severe delays leaving the car park, because of ‘issues with the surrounding roads’.

The reader who got in touch said it’s put him off visiting the shopping centre ever again, and that he feels as though he’s wasted thousands of hours in the past trying to get out of the car park, which he described as a ‘trap’.

Yesterday, CoventryLive reported how it was taking some drivers an hour and a half to leave the car park.


The words "piss-up" and "brewery" come to mind! :roll:
