Worle Park and Ride and Worle Parkway Train Station excellent transport links to WGBP14 Sep 2013
Part of the £15million ‘Weston Package’ Scheme has now finished at Worle Parkway Train station. A new car park has been created just off Diamond Batch which links Weston Gateway Business Park to Worle Parkway. Works to improve parking and transport links out of the train station were swiftly undertaken and sees an additional 300 car parking spaces as well as a dedicated bus stop with shelters forming part of Worle Park and Ride.
Department for Transport and North Somerset Council funded the improvement works making it easier for commuters to get in and out of Weston.
Dowlas Director, Gemma Hughes, states, ‘the new transport links are a brilliant facility for Weston Gateway Business Park as it enables workers to access the business park easily from all over Weston and people that may be travelling down from Bristol. The new bus stop means that people are just minutes from the pedestrian footbridge that links Diamond Batch to Weston Gateway Business Park. Organisations that we are currently in negations with have already highlighted that benefit of Worle Parkway Station to Weston Gateway Business Park, which makes the business park the only one in North Somerset with a train station in easy walking distance.’
The new Worle park and ride has a direct entrance to the platform of Worle Parkway Train Station and provides regular services all over North Somerset from Bristol, Exeter and London. Weston Gateway Business Park has seen an increased level of enquiries over the last quarter and with this additional benefit Dowlas hope to continue their success.
