I haven’t seen this on-campus street in front of my office this empty for quite a long while. It’s wonderful to see it like this again — peaceful and walkable.
For seven years (?) since we moved into the new building, this street had turned from a quiet and walkable pathway into a madly overcrowded motorcycle parking lot. For seven years, it was becoming more and more difficult everyday to just pass through it.
This week, at last, the university has implemented a policy that I have been waiting for all those years: Park n’ Walk.
Now all motorcycles have to be parked in the designated areas near the northern gate — where the ‘Pentagon’, the garage, and the lecturers’ housing used to stand. From there, everybody has to walk to their buildings.
