Sutton Coldfield station car park in two week programme of resurfacing works


Commuters who use the car park at Sutton Coldfield railway station are being warned of disruption from two weeks of refurbishment works about to begin.

They are due to take place between Monday February 19 and Sunday March 4 inclusive.

The station will remain open but parts of the car park will be closed in a three-phase programme of works.

 

The first is between February 19-25, where no parking will be possible and which will see the temporary loss of 200 spaces.

The second is between February 26 - March 3, where there will also be no parking and with the temporary loss of 120 spaces.

The third phase is Sunday March 4, where the car park will be completely closed for works.

It is scheduled to re-open the following day.

From February 19 - March 3 there will be pedestrian access via the car park entrance on Railway Road.

On March 4 there will be no pedestrian access via the car park entrance on Railway Road.

There will be pedestrian access via the rail station entrance for the whole of the project.

Parking enforcement will be in operation and any vehicle left overnight may be moved by TfWM’s contractor and the cost will be recovered against the vehicle owner.

The work is being carried out by Transport for West Midlands (TfWM), part of the West Midlands Combined Authority.

A spokesman for Transport for West Midlands said: “We apologise in advance for any inconvenience these works may cause but they need to be done and once complete will enhance the station environment.

“Motorists can play their part by considering using public transport to get to the station and we encourage those who live within 1 mile of the station to leave their car at home and to walk or cycle.”
