SIR, - I couldn't agree more with the article about the new station car park being a tight fit and I don't drive a 4x4.

My Ford Mondeo only just fits round the turns for the ramps and equally as bad are the exit and entry lanes - alloy wheels and kerbs are not a good mix.

Everything has been designed with "non-car-friendly concrete" and high kerbs. As for FCC saying the car park meets "all the strict standards required by Network Rail" - sorry, Network Rail deal with the rail infrastructure.

Didn't NCP as car-park operators get involved? Why is the car park at Luton Airport Parkway so well designed then with good spacing and tons less concrete?

I particularly loved the comment from FCC that "any new car park will take a while to adjust to". How - either the concrete goes, which it won't, or I get a smaller car as I can't adjust the size of my current car, which I won't. Also I don't know if any other user has noticed but the new car park isn't very full compared to the old open space. Either people are going elsewhere or spreading themsleves over a number of floors.
