Additional temporary parking spaces in Runcorn

11/21/2008 AT 07:51

Parking at the station was reduced earlier this year as work started on constructing a new multi-storey Car Park at the station. Now, working in conjunction with Halton Council Virgin Trains is providing additional parking spaces in Picow Farm Road, just five minutes walk to the station.

The additional parking is on land adjacent to the ground previously used by Halton Football Club. Improved access road, lighting and fencing have been provided.

Payment for parking can be made direct to NCP by mobile phone, following the instructions on display at the car park, or by cash or credit card at Runcorn station. The Picow Farm Road car park will be open from 0700 until 2200 on weekdays.

Virgin Trains Station Manager Keith Millard said: “We have listened to the feedback from our customers, local residents and the local council who all expressed concern at the reduced number of parking spaces we have had available over the last six months and are pleased to be able to provide additional parking spaces, which will reduce on street parking around the station.”

In partnership with Network Rail the work at Runcorn station will provide an additional 198 car parking spaces. The new 558-space car park is expected to be completed in Spring 2009.

The work at Runcorn is part of a joint project between Virgin Trains and Network Rail to improve car parking at all 17 stations on the West Coast route which are managed by Virgin Trains. The other stations involved are: Lancaster, Penrith, Warrington Bank Quay, Wigan North Western, Carlisle, Oxenholme, Preston, Crewe, Stockport, Macclesfield, Stoke-on-Trent, Stafford, Wolverhampton, Birmingham International, Coventry and Rugby.

Virgin Trains and Network Rail are working closely with Passenger Focus to minimise the inconvenience to customers during the work to improve car parking at Runcorn station.
