Maidenhead MP Theresa May has welcomed the reintroduction of a car park providing more than 140 spaces at the town’s station.
Silco Drive car park was taken out of use six years ago to allow for the construction of a depot and sidings as part of the Elizabeth line project.
With those works complete and Elizabeth line services commencing in May last year, Network Rail has funded the £600,000 restoration of the car park.It has been resurfaced and relined to bring 141 spaces back into use, along with CCTV and a Customer Information Screen showing real-time train information. Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) will also be introduced.
Theresa stated that: “I’m pleased to see the parking spaces in Silco Drive car park coming back into use. With the enhanced services of GWR and the Elizabeth line, Maidenhead is an increasingly important station. The spaces in Silco Drive car park will be a real boost for those who need to drive to the station.”
