Truck which has been parked in our parking area (zone F) on Govan Street for a few days now. It looks like it has been involved in a collision and has possibly been abandoned? There is a sign on the dashboard saying 'broken down gone for help'.

It is taking up space and making it very difficult to park. It blocked our car in completely in the middle space and we had to add arrange for the car behind to move to get ours out.

Please can you look into getting this moved ASAP? two men climbing on the vehicle and they had a petrol can.

  • Thank you for recording this issue. I'm sorry I got the registration plate wrong. The first letter is an N not a W.

    Also, yesterday (Sunday) we saw two men climbing on the vehicle and they had a petrol can. They left but we don't know what they were doing.

  • Dear Sir,

    Thank you for your email. Please be advised, I have sent this as urgent to the Abandoned Vehicles (AV) Team to investigate in line with AV procedures.

    Presently, our officers are carrying out a skeletal service in which only hazardous vehicles are prioritised. This may cause a delay in our investigations.

    Whiles we work to replace our AV service to ensure that all reports received are actioned and investigated, we kindly ask that you bear with us.

    Kind regards

    Parking Enforcement

  • Thanks for the update. I don't know what qualifies as a hazardous vehicle but the engine is clearly very damaged and exposed and there is also a large bit of machinery attached to the back which looks like it could easily fall on any vehicle parked behind it (see pic) or be climbed on by the local kids who like to climb things. It is a couple of metres high, the pic is only of the bottom part. Thanks
