Closure Of Part Of Long Term Airport Parking Lot

November 3, 2017

Bermuda Skyport said that with “the Island continuing to experience unusually high tides,” they wish to “advise the public that part of the long-term parking lot at the L.F. Wade International Airport has been closed indefinitely as a precaution.”

“The excessive high tides, which have caused flooding conditions in the low-lying car park, are expected tomorrow through Wednesday, November 8. As a result, a section of the long-term parking lot will be closed. Partial barriers have been put in place while more visible fencing to cordon off the affected areas will soon be installed,” a spokesperson said,

Car being removed from airport long term parking when it flooded last month: 

Motorists are asked to avoid parking in the cordoned-off area to avoid possible flood damage to their vehicles.

Mikaela Pearman, Marking & Communications Office, Bermuda Skyport, says: “We would like to advise vehicle owners to take extra caution when parking at the Airport’s long-term lot as Bermuda Skyport will not be responsible for any damage to vehicles.

“With the peak-travel November 11 holiday weekend approaching, available parking may be limited. As such, we’re asking travellers to kindly plan accordingly.”

    There is another waste being dumped next door to effectively raise the height of the car park so this is no longer a problem.

  2. Micro says:

    Simple quick solution would be take any of the truck loads of rubble that go to the landfill every day and raise the whole lot.

    UMMMM would it not take too much to get some fill & raise the level of the area? You don’t close the car park & do nothing for months when travelers need parking.

    “Skyport will not be responsible for any damage to vehicles”. That is just nonsense. If I paid money to park at the airport in an area they know to flood, and the ocean came in, I am onto my lawyer in a heartbeat.

    Of course they are responsible.

      Then your creating your own Vortex.
      They warned you not to you dum sheet.

      Who you gonna call; Mark?

      • Vortex says:

        So where do you park then?
        Busy airport; Classic Week, Pre xmas trips, heavy business flow pre Jan 1.

        If they are gonna take my money, and my car is damaged – yes it should be on their dollar. Putting this weak release out doesn’t change that.

          You raise a point that I’m sure will have a lot of people saying ‘hmmm ?’ but I don’t think it’s that straightforward.

          Let’s go back to Fabian in 2003 . Did anyone back then even think of seeking recompense from the airport authorities for the total loss of their cars ?
          And even since then people have been leaving their cars there for long term parking at the very height of hurricane season .

          I have a strong feeling that there must be a sign down there somewhere that says ‘park at your own risk’.

          Now , why anyone would want to leave their expensive cars there in that dusty , salty , extreme sun exposed place is beyond me. How much does long term parking cost compared to a round trip taxi fare ?
          I do know that some people say they don’t want the hassle of going through getting a taxi when they return home but there’s always the option of getting a friend to take you down and pick you up , even in your own car.

          And as to liability . Has anyone every tried to claim off of the Corporation when their car was damaged in a city parking lot ? Or maybe at one of the grocery stores ? I’ve certainly never heard of such a case.

    If anyone really paid attention the tides will be high like this for the next few months. This isn’t just a one off thing.

    Can I park my boat there?
