As a result of West Coast Trains Ltd (WCTL) identifying the need to improve car parking provision at a number of key stations along the West Coast Main Line (WCML) we were appointed to complete GRIP stage 2&3 initially for 19 stations.
Seymour Harris were responsible for the preparation of layouts and designs to provide a single option and develop this through informal and formal consultation with the relevant Local Authority, to achieve Network Rail endorsement and develop the schemes through to final design development. Thirteen of the car parks are bespoke designed Multi Storey, which provides approximately 4400 spaces. Over 1500 spaces have been provided in surface car parks. The total provision is 5,500 spaces.
The approx value of the works is £52 million.
