More parking for cars at Pangbourne station

Listen to this article

Pangbourne railway station is to get 35 extra car park spaces, owing to a cash injection of more than £180,000, after First Great Western successfully secured funding from an industry improvement scheme.

The improvement will make it significantly easier to park and will cater for growing passenger demand.

The funding follows a bid by First Great Western to the Station Commercial Project Facility, a £100m Department for Transport scheme administered by Network Rail and the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC).

Managing Director for First Great Western Mark Hopwood said:

“This announcement is great news for our customers especially coming so soon after last week’s announcement of additional carriages for London Thames Valley services.

“The car park expansion will make a big difference for Pangbourne residents and businesses, and we are delighted to have secured the finance needed for this very important project.”

Detailed planning and design work is currently being carried out before work begins on site.
