Letterkenny MD Cllr Liam Blaney has called for parking spaces beside e-car charging points to be specially designated for electric cars only.
Cllr Blaney raised a motion at today’s Municipal District meeting to ensure that every charging point in Letterkenny would have a marked parking space beside it.
He said a local man who bought an electric car found himself driving around Letterkenny searching for a car parking space beside a charger.
Cllr Micheal McBride said the council needed to ‘get out of the traps’ and prepare for the rise in ecar sales. He asked to explore options to have up to 5 or 6 parking spaces position in a circle around charging stations.
There are a number of ecars Public Charge Points located in the Letterkenny Town Centre, including Justice Walsh Road, An Grianan Theatre and Tobin’s Service Station.
Mr Fergal Doherty, Engineer and Area Manager, agreed to examine the current issue at the existing car parking spaces.Tags:
