Council have agreed to re-classify the area of the bar between the two brick pillars as a spike bar. A notice to this effect has been posted.
The barrier system is working reasonably well and is currently under a trial to determine if the current route is acceptable.
The capacity of the new electrical trolley store has been increased by 6. I am currently searching for a time release door mechanism to allow the doors to be kept open for a short period of time before automatically closing.
