STATION CAR PARK SHORTLISTED FOR AWARD

Network Rail’s brand new car park at Birmingham International station has been shortlisted in the best new car park category of the British Car Parking Awards 2010. Up against three other entries, the winner will be announced at a ceremony in London on 12 March.

Jo Kaye, Network Rail’s route director, said: -This facility delivers more than just additional parking spaces. With the innovative architectural design, use of renewable power, a new parking payment system, full CCTV coverage and upgrade to the remaining ground level car parking, this is a state-of-the art parking facility dedicated to the rail users of Birmingham International station.

The six-storey car park was opened in late September last year, nearly four weeks ahead of schedule and provides an additional 835 parking spaces for people using the station. It is managed by Virgin Trains and is just one of 17 new or upgraded facilities being provided by Network Rail at Virgin managed stations on the west coast main line in a £90m project.

Anne Grant, Virgin Trains station manager at Birmingham International said: “The new car park is a much needed and welcomed addition to the station. Our customers tell us that provision of parking facilities is very important to them and now users of Birmingham International have a much needed facility.”

The project was delivered by Network Rail’s infrastructure investments team in Manchester and the work was contracted to Geoffrey Osborne Construction Ltd.
