Northern Ireland’s integrated bus and rail public transport company has revealed plans to increase the parking capacity of Moira Train Station Park & Ride Facility to around 400 parking spaces by developing a potential site located beside the existing carpark.
Translink has revealed plans to increase the capacity of Moira Train Station Park & Ride Facility to around 400 parking spaces by developing a potential site located beside the existing carpark.
The scheme would provide convenient access to Moira Train Station for vehicles and pedestrians, as well as a safe and secure facility with new cycle shelters, disabled access parking spaces, CCTV, security fencing and lighting. There will also be additional vehicle access from the A26 Glenavy Road helping to reduce commuter traffic and local parking problems on Station Road.
Aidan Stott, Translink Project Manager, says this is a good opportunity to help shape proposals for the new Park & Ride:
“This is an exciting time for Park & Ride as more and more people enjoy the convenience of taking the train or bus as a better way to travel. “We want to involve the local community at this early stage to help us shape the plans that we will submit for planning application in coming months.
“Our information session includes the opportunity to view plans, meet local Translink representatives and ask questions about the development.
“This Park & Ride development will reduce parking problems in the area and make train travel even more accessible. It will also facilitate future growth in rail passengers and supports ‘greener’ more sustainable travel. “The project Business Case has been approved and subject to funding, the availability of land and the necessary planning approvals, work could potentially start during 2018.”
