The 3rd

When Pi Shop closed in 2018, owner Peter Sanchez-Iglesias promised “some epic future projects”.  Located between two Michelin-starred restaurants, Casamia and Paco Tapas, the space will from tomorrow become a new concept called ‘The 3rd’. Opening around 10am on 20th March, The 3rd will serve croissants, bread and meal boxes. As this will be their first day, stocks will initially be limited , so first come first served! We wish them well for a long term success.

Car park improvements

The car park in Bathurst Basin has undergone some substantial changes.

Two new disabled bays with access lanes have been marked out on the left hand side. This increases the number of such bays by one, but reduces the total number of car slots available by one.

The meter has been moved to mid-point on the left hand side of the car park.

New Bollards

As part of Lower Guinea Street road and pedestrian infrastructure upgrade, five new bollards have been positioned at the entrance to the street to keep heavy goods vehicles off the pavement and make it safer for pedestrians.

Elderly road sign retires

The road sign (image right) warning traffic of elderly pedestrians along Lower Guinea Street has finally been removed. The sign was required when Lower Guinea Street was open to traffic and when geriatric patients were making their way from the car-park to the General Hospital.
