Wightlink port redevelopment & new G class

Recommended Posts

A few issues have arisen with the new check in system. Firstly only 1 booth is used. On arrival if there are vehicles checking in as freight you cannot see the writing on the ground that says cars go left. You can only see the left lane that says Drop Off Lane. This means cars follow freight by mistake. Also if an artic checks in they tend to keep as far right as possible so they can swing into lanes 14-16. However, cars checking in are coming from the left and can assume artic is going to exit the terminal as the lane says exit. If the artic driver is unaware of cars to the left and the cars unaware the lorry is not going out but swinging left you end up with what happened the other day...Crunch!. Luckily it was not serious but could have been. There needs to be a big rethink. Perhaps the toilet block should have been knocked down and straighter check in lanes used. It's lack of space again that causes these problems. Crossing over different styles of traffic is always going to carry a risk.
