Parking at Kemble Station has recently doubled, following the completion of work on a new car park officially opened by HRH The Princess Royal.
The £1.4 million works will provide 333 additional spaces at a new, separate car park, and was re-opened by Princess Anne driving through a ribbon at a special event to mark the occasion. A plaque was also unveiled at the station.

“More and more people are turning to rail for their local and long distance journeys; to meet this demand we recently launched our new Intercity Express Trains on the GWR network, offering more seats and more frequent services; and customers will see these new trains operate on the South Cotswold route next Summer.
“GWR is dedicated to supporting the communities it serves and this new car park now complete, and improved rail services, will enable the local economy to continue to thrive both now and into the future.”
