It is just under a 10 minute walk from where I live and it is a popular market for the surrounding areas. Perhaps to popular now for its current location ?
However not for the first time on a market day, emergency vehicles (Policia Local giving SAMU a blue light and siren escort) this morning struggled to reach the market location. The side roads that lead off of the market road and other roads that lead onto the side roads have parking on both sides. Many of these roads are narrow and the only opportunity to allow traffic to pass is where there are entrances to peoples driveways.
The parked vehicles on these roads seem to be a cumulation of cars belonging to those who live on the market road who move them for the market; market stall holder vehicles; visitors to the market and people to lazy to park their vehicles in their gated communities even if parking is available.
If its a struggle for police and ambulance vehicles, then there is little hope for a fire engine getting through on some of these roads.
If the market stays in it's current location then access for emergency vehicles to the market and surrounding roads really needs to be reviewed.
