PRONI reopens
« on: Wednesday 09 March 11 19:58 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone tell me what the parking facilities will be like at the new PRONI site please.

I have rang them all week and nobody seems to know for sure.

Is it better or worse than the last site

If limited parking on site what would be the nearest bus stop.


Thank you

Steve

I suspect you'll have to park at the Odyssey and walk. The bus route would probably be the 26, getting off near the Odyssey, or on the train - Bridge End train station.

Yes the Odyssey complex is where the cinema is. Anyone can use the Odyssey car park (for a fee of course).

Hi

Its a pitty PRONI could not give us these details now so we can start to plan. I would love to see some pictures of what it looks like in side and the layout of the building.

Surpose I will have to wait until the end of the month and be ready for the scrum, as i am sure it will be like the last few weeks before they closed at Balmoral.

The nearest car park might be that in the Highpark Centre, High Street.  There are also some park and ride car parks which could be cheaper if you were planning on a lengthy visit to PRONI.

Check out www.belfastcity.gov.uk/stgeorgesmarket/docs/BelfastCarParks.pdf
and www.ncp.co.uk/car-park.html?cpid=700133&name=Montgomery Street

Hi

The nearest carpark so far is at the Odyssey.
See the below link for Prices. It looks like a prepay ticket for 6 hours at 3.20 is the best offer.

HI
I never gave parking a thought I just assumed it would all be sorted and parking would have been included in the new place, certainly will make a difference. There is always a price to pay.
