Parking at Kemble Station is set to double by the summer after work began on a new car park.

The £1.4 million works are due to complete by mid-Summer, and will provide 333 additional spaces at a new, separate car park.

GWR Regional Development Manager Matt Barnes said:

“More and more people are turning to rail for their local and long distance journeys; to meet this demand later this year we will start to see brand new Intercity Express Trains on the GWR network, offering more seats and more frequent services.

“GWR is dedicated to supporting the communities it serves and this new car park when complete, and improved rail services, will enable the local economy to continue to thrive both now and into the future.”

Presently Kemble Station 335 long stay, plus four short stay parking bays. The new car park will add an extra 333 spaces.
