Parking spaces doubled for commuters
2:00pm Wednesday 3rd October 2012 in News
WORK to double the number of car park spaces for commuters at Charlbury Station is almost complete.
First Great Western (FGW) has spent £470,000 to add 75 spaces on land between the station approach road and the B4437 to Burford.
A large part of the car park opened yesterday but disabled spaces and some finishing touches are still to be completed.
Meanwhile, the company said a £400,000 project to create 191 spaces at Hanborough Station to almost quadruple the existing number will start “relatively swiftly” but did not set a date.
FGW spokesman Dan Panes said: “The passenger growth in and around these station in the past five years has been significant and in order for us to make sure these stations are equipped for growth in years to come it is quite clear we need to make the investment we are making to make it easier to park for our customers and hopefully attract more customers to the railway.”
