When will UK car parks become too small for cars?
according to a Study of VanaramaCars in the UK are just 11 years and three months (May 2034) away from having their cars on average too big to park car parking space.
Only four countries (South Korea, USA, Vietnam and Ethiopia) will outgrow theirs rooms before Great Britain.
Therefore, this will be the case in May 2034 when vehicle sizes continue to increase slowly.
Top 10 countries that will outgrow their parking lots the fastest
1. South Korea – One year, six months (average parking spot Size: 5.3 x 2.5m)
2. USA – One year, nine months (5.5 x 2.6 m)
3. Vietnam – Three years, six months (5.3 x 2.5 m)
4. Ethiopia – 11 years (5.3 x 2.5 m)
5. United Kingdom – 11 years, three months (5 x 2.8 m)
6. Turkey – 15 years, 4 months (5.3 x 2.5 m)
7. Argentina – 15 years, nine months (5.3 x 2.5 m)
8. India – 20 years, three months (5m x 2.5m)
9. Poland – 29 years, five months (5.3 x 2.5 m)
10. Philippines – 34 years, 10 months (5 x 2.5 m)
Alongside this, Vanarama examined how many additional miles from parking spot Asphalt is required to get the same number of parking spaces.
Third on this list was the UK, as by 2030 it will need an additional 33 miles of asphalt for parking for every 100,000 spaces.
When applied to the estimated 11.3 million bays, that’s a total of 3,729 additional miles Park needed – just to maintain current number of UK places.
If you lined up all the tarmac it would run twice from Land’s End to John O’Groats and back.
