Parking for cars and coaches for this otherwise widely welcomed project will be a challenge. Other swimming pools in the City have free car parking whereas the nearby NIA car parks charge for use. Therefore visitors may be tempted to use neighbouring streets, which are already congested with city workers avoiding parking charges.
