Devon House has taken definitive
steps to control the flow of traffic on the property as patronage
increases at the 124- year old heritage site. A new one way system,
which was introduced in October, allows patron access via Waterloo
road and exit by way of Kingsway Avenue. The Hope Road Main entrance
is now closed to vehicular traffic except in emergency situations.
A ticketing system is also in place to assist in safeguarding
vehicles parked on the property.
With the introduction of
the one way system, a re-design of the main car park is being
undertaken with the kind support of the Grog Shoppe. Already several
lights have been installed at the back of the property, and additional
car spaces created. The project is slated for completion in 2005
and will also include the upgrading of the driveway to the back
of the property, the erection of a guardhouse, installation of
a backgate, and additional lighting for the Kingsway Exit.
