Work is almost complete to build an additional 100 car bays at Meltham Station. The car park is planned to open in September 2020, once lighting and CCTV have been installed.
This car park expansion is part of the solution to counteract the 180 passenger parking bays being permanently removed in Bayswater to make way for the new station.
As per the below map, Meltham Station’s northern car park will be extended approximately 200 metres west, adding an additional 100 car bays. There will be no change to the southern car park.
Extending only the northern car park means impacts to the Principal Shared Path can be avoided and a number of trees along Whatley Crescent can be kept. While some trees will need to be pruned, we are not anticipating the removal of any trees as part of the Meltham Station car park extension and additional trees will be planted.
