Note

***************************************************************************************

Due to Planned Track Improvements works, the car park adjacent to Platform 4 will have a reduction of available spaces and a period of complete closure to accomodate equipment and components. Unfortunately, due to space constraints, it is not practical to offer car park season ticket holders parking at nearby stations.

Half of the car park will be closed from 14th February and 16th March 2014

The whole car park will be closed from 17th March until 26th April 2014. During this time, the car park adjacent to platform 1 will be restricted to holders of Monthly or longer Car Park season tickets until 1000 Monday to Friday

Half of the car park will be closed from 27th April until 31st July
