Train passengers are being reminded that work begins on the new multistorey Park and Ride facility next to Longbridge Station this weekend, with the car park set to be closed for around 12 months.
As part of a commitment to reduce the number of cars on the roads and improve air quality, Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) has invested a further £10 million in expanding Park and Ride provision across the region this year. This investment builds on the 8500 spaces already installed over the last 20 years at the cost of around £17 million.
The Longbridge Park and Ride is set to close this Sunday (19th May) and reopen next spring.
Work had already begun today, with cycle racks being removed.
Closure: Longbridge Park and Ride will CLOSE from Sunday 19th May 2019. Please do not leave your car overnight on Saturday 18 May 2019 – any cars left overnight will receive a £100 fixed penalty notice to cover the cost of moving the vehicle.
Reopening: Completion and reopening is expected in Spring 2020
