A new multi storey car park has opened at Bishop’s Stortford railway station, offering secure parking for cars and bicycles, and 14 electric vehicle charge points for electric cars.
The new multi storey car park on Anchor Street is now open. It has 401 parking spaces, 14 electric vehicle charging points and a secure cycle compound with 50 spaces.
There are also 20 blue badge spaces all on the ground floor, two of which are supplied with electric vehicle charging points. The car park – which is split over 11 floors and has two lifts – has power doors and is fully wheelchair accessible.
Initially, people will be able to park between the ground floor and level 9, with the final two floors being open for use at a later date.
Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, said: “Working with our rail industry partners, underutilised land has been released for comprehensive redevelopment - enabling Greater Anglia to provide a brand-new, fit for purpose, multi storey car park for the benefit of our rail customers and the town centre.
“We know many of our customers are environmentally conscious, and we are pleased that the car park includes a secure cycle compound and 14 electric vehicle charge points – currently the highest number at any station on our network.”
