Gloucestershire County Council finish work to make more parking spaces at Cam and Dursley Railway Station
MORE parking spaces are now available at a popular railway station after years of congestion problems.
Following complaints about a lack of spaces at Cam and Dursley Railway Station, which were reported in the Gazette on February 14, Gloucestershire County Council has decided to take action.
Over the weekend contractors worked on freeing up space at the station by clearing vegetation and removing overgrown flowerbeds, as well as constructing additional spaces.
The work has made ten more spaces for cars, increasing the total number to 130 according to the Great Western Route Utilisation Strategy.
For the safety of residents and contract staff, areas of the car park were temporarily unavailable while the work was carried out.
Cabinet member for environment and economy Cllr Chas Fellows said: "This work has been identified to free up a number of spaces to minimise congestion in the car park, following concerns raised by local people.
"I’m pleased that for a small cost we are able to improve parking in the car park for local rail users and I would like to thank the local member Cllr Brian Tipper for his involvement in this project."
