347 new Park and Ride spaces being developed in Portadown

1 February 2018

Work is underway on the construction of a new Park and Ride in Portadown.



This facility for Translink customers is situated at the Junction of Corcrain Road and Northway in Portadown.

Works started on site in November 2017 and are scheduled to be completed during the Autumn of 2018, when 347 free Park and Ride spaces will come on stream.

The new Park and Ride will have CCTV and extended cycle storage facilities to enhance passenger security and convenience.

The project involves clearing the site, provision of drainage and car park surfacing as well as construction of a new entrance to the Park and Ride facility. It will also include new lighting and security fencing.

As part of these works, additional accessible parking spaces will become available at Portadown Station entrance.

Translink Project Manager Aidan Stott said: “This new Park and Ride will significantly enhance parking availability for our passengers in Portadown and surrounding areas. Work carried out to date on the new facility by our contractors, Gibson Brothers Limited, includes site clearance and construction of a new entrance on the Corcrain Road, which will benefit commuters from the Armagh and Dungannon areas who wish to use the new Park and Ride”.

Aidan concluded: “The development of Park and Ride facilities across Northern Ireland is a key part of our focus in encouraging passengers to use our bus and train services”.
