Work on Haslemere’s new station car park will start in mid-July and will see an extra 100 bays made available – as well as a new cycle hub, improved security, segregated walkways and new lighting.
The new decked car park will be built on top of the existing main car park, while the forecourt is also being improved – for easier access for pedestrians, cyclists, taxis and public transport users.
Alistair Wright, Head of Station Property, South West Trains, said: “Haslemere station was used for more than 1.7million journeys in 2014/15.
“This project will provide more than 100 extra car parking spaces and is a crucial part of our multi million pound programme to provide 1,400 extra car parking spaces across the network.
“There is simply no way of significantly expanding a car park without impacting on the number of spaces available for our passengers but we are working closely with local stakeholders and others to keep passengers informed about their travel options while the works are carried out.”
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.
