This blog documents the construction of an IKEA store in the inner city of Coventry. A seemingly bizarre thing to do.
These grand temples to the flatpack are located with the car in mind. Commonly built on retail parks near motorway junctions, the traffic nearby at a weekend can leave you thinking that even free samples of the elixir of life could not generate worse queues.
Traffic problems of epic proportions are common at IKEA stores. So have the store architects and the traffic planners in Coventry City Council found a way of averting mayhem? Maybe they have, lets wait and see what happens.
