A temporary motorcycle parking area has been installed next to sub-station N, which is opposite the west door of 4ES. The parking is available with immediate effect. Security apologise that it is not under cover, but it is the best that that can be found at present, in the short term. They also ask that any motorcyclists using the temporary parking area ensure that they have registered their motorcycle here in case of an emergency.
