Croy Park and Ride reaches halfway stage

Work on the Croy rail station Park and Ride is racing ahead with the second phase of the development due to start next week.

Customers are advised that the area currently used for parking will be closed from 06:00 hrs on Tuesday 28 September 2010 to allow for the continued construction work.

The site will be able to accommodate 270 vehicles during the next stage of development work.

Temporary road signs will be in place to keep traffic flowing but customers should be aware that the entrance to the current facility will be closed from Tuesday onwards and there will be no turning point as a result. The new entry point will be from Constarry Road.

Regular commuters who use the parking area will see flyers on their windscreens advising them of the new arrangements. Information signs will also be placed at the exit.

SPT member for North Lanarkshire and Vice Convenor of Planning and Transportation Councillor Mark Griffin welcomes the successful completion of the first phase. He says: “It’s great to see the substantial progress being made on Croy station’s new Park and Ride.

“I recognise there has been a bit of disruption while this work progresses and we are grateful to everyone for bearing with us. I think people will agree though that this is an important project for the area and even at this halfway point, you can see a massive improvement.

“I look forward to the official opening later in the year.”

SPT is working with our contractor to have the new facility fully operational in December this year.
