This is the view as you drive up the road leading into the court complex. I can expect very heavy traffic flow during the mornings once the court is fully operational at the start of May.
Lawyers and members of the public, as of now, will have to park at the parking bays located right outside the court gate. Last I heard, all the parking bays within the court premises are reserved for the judges, and other court staff.
The parking bays, not many of them considering there are more than 70 different courts housed in one complex
I took a walk around the court complex last week, and it is truly massive. The court is split up into 5 main levels, and a basement level containing the cafeteria and some filing counters for the subordinate courts. Finding the respective court rooms were relatively easy. I can imagine a real fight for the four lifts located in the lobby as the lawyers rush to the different courts in the morning.
You then enter into the main lobby area
Each of the court rooms are rather small, especially if you are used to some of the large hall-like court rooms in the present Commercial Division. All the Magistrate, Sessions and High Courts are of the same size. For the High Courts, judges will now hear lawyers for the chambers matters in a tiny room. Judges further have their own room as their chambers
Below is the layout of the Court. All the Sessions Courts are located in the left wing (purple section), High Courts in the middle section (light blue section), and all Magistrate Courts are in the right wing (navy blue section). You just have to hunt down the appropriate level the court is on. It is truly a long walk if you have a Sessions Court matter, and then you have to run to the High Court, or even worse, start a heart-attack trek from the Sessions to the Magistrate Court.
