A long time ago traffic wardens, working for the police,
were put on other duties. Then boroughs
like Slough and RBWM took over enforcement of on-street parking. This created disparity between good
enforcement of on-street parking restrictions but non-existent enforcement – by
the police – of yellow lines.
This all changed by the decriminalisation of yellow lines
and the boroughs took over from the police, supposedly to be more even handed
for on-street parking and yellow line enforcement.

Apparently “...they did not need to be ugly...”, he says!!!!! If anyone has ever seen an attractive steel and concrete car park anywhere in the western world, I would like to see it!
Cllr. Bicknell is reported as saying that: "They can be filled in so they do not look like steel frames on a concrete floor. You can have flower troughs."
Ah, yes. Flower troughs... It would have to feature more baskets and troughs than the Hanging Gardens of Babylon to disguise the fact that it was a naff steel and concrete car park!!! And what of the cost and labour involved in replanting every few months, throughout the year? What’s the betting it would get forgotten at the very first opportunity?
It staggers me that such a truly ugly structure can be proposed at the foot of the castle walls, but that is par for the course these days, what with ferris wheels and icerinkntat being the norm...

Published by RBWM Thursday 23 February 2017Visitors and residents who use the River Street car park in Windsor will be able to use an up to date, secure payment system when it goes live on Tuesday 28 February.The current pay and display machines will be replaced by a pay on foot system that sees drivers take a chip coin on entry, without the need to pay at the start of their visit. When they leave the car park they simply need to use the chip coin to find out how much they owe, before using the same coin to exit. It works exactly the same as traditional pay on foot systems, except the chip coins are more durable, secure and environmentally friendly than a paper ticket. Cllr Carwyn Cox, cabinet member for environmental services (inc. parking), said: “I am pleased that we are able to introduce this system, which will allow visitors and residents to pay for the time that they spend in the car park and no longer have to worry about their ticket expiring.“I am also glad that there are a variety of payment methods, whether it be cash, card or by using the Parkmobile application, and that we have also retained the ability for residents to benefit from the Advantage Card discount." Upon entry, every car park user will be issued with a purple chip coin which they need to retain until they are ready to leave. If paying by cash or card, the coin can be inserted into any of the new payment machines, which will display the amount due. Once a payment has been made the chip coin will be returned and this can then be used at the exit barriers to leave the car park. Blue badge holders or those choosing to pay for their parking through the Parkmobile application can go to payment machines and press the assistance button to get their chip coins validated. They can then exit by using the validated chip coin. Holders of a yellow Advantage Card can still benefit from the same discounts by entering the last four digits of their Advantage Card when instructed by the machines. All users need to retain their chip coin until they exit the car park. There is an additional charge for any lost chip coins on top of the parking fee. The payment machines accept coins, notes and credit/debit cards and change is given. Additional signage and instructions will be placed in the car park and staff will be on hand for the first week to assist users.
