Before about 9.30AM you can park in Gurney Plaza, but then you find that you cannot easily get outside – I was heading for Starbucks, for example. Normally I would catch the lift to the ground flor and simply go outside – but these doors are locked. The doors to inside Gurney Plaza are also locked.
If are in the fifth floor car park on the Gurney Drive side, and catch the lift to the basement, the door to the car park is open, and you can turn left into the car park, and right out the car park entrance, and in a moment you will be outside.
If you get into the plaza, which I have done from the sixth floor car park on the Kelawai Road side, and you get to the ground floor, you can get out through McDonald’s.
There may be other routes, but I am rarely there that early for it to bother me. In terms of fire safety and quick evacuation I am not sure how safe it is.
