Parking layout & routing

  • Width of parking bays minimum of 2.50m.

  • One way direction and anti-clockwise = good overview, more convenient and safer.

  • Angled parking as a goal = parking spaces easier and faster accessible & supporting one way direction. The added value and thus realisation, however, depends on the available dimensions, such as the width of driving aisle.

  • Circulation = maximum number of spaces on entry route, minimum number of spaces on exit route & recirculation options.

  • Good visibility is vital where pedestrian routes cross principal traffic routes.

Construction in relation to parking layout

  • Design of car park structure should support angled parking = clear spans and no obstructing structural elements.

  • Angled parking has less wide driving aisles = reduces the construction span compared to 90 degrees parking.
