product-autobarriers New car park opens at Bristol Parkway railway stationA new £13 million multi-storey car park at Bristol Parkway railway station has officially opened, providing a much-need extra 710 parking spaces for commuters, a recent news report in the local media reveals.

Before the work, the site was regularly full, with commuters struggling to park. The project added a completely new storey to the car park, and saw the whole site redeveloped.

Rob Mullen, First Great Western general manager for the central region, said: “Bristol Parkway Station serves almost three million rail passengers a year and this is expected to grow significantly when the line to London is electrified.

“I am delighted to be able to provide the minister with a tour of the new facility which significantly increases capacity, ensuring that we can cater for the increase in passenger demand both now and in the future.”

Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles has an extensive experience in creating advanced, reliable, yet quite affordable access restriction solutions for car parks.

The vehicle barriers developed by Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles can work in any weather, are able to immediately recognise authorised personnel and are supplied complete and ready to accept power and data connections, meaning that they can be easily interlinked with a new or existing access control system. Plus, boom arms are available in a number of different lengths to suit various road widths.

Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that the automatic car park barriers supplied by Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles can also be fitted with a number of useful extras, such as a folding arm mechanism, impact release mechanism or hanging racks / barrier skirts.
