WORK has begun on a £20 million multistorey car park at Didcot Parkway.

The scheme will see the number of spaces increase by over 65 per cent to 1,800.

It is hoped the car park will be finished by summer 2018 and Great Western Railway (GWR) are looking into alternative car parks while the work is being carried out on Foxhall Road.

GWR Regional Development Manager Tom Pierpoint said: “Didcot Parkway is used by over three million customers every year, and offers quick and easy journeys to Oxford, Banbury, Reading and London – making it a key hub.

“With London around 40 minutes away by train, a new multi-storey car park, complimenting new trains and more seats, will provide a better travelling experience for all those who use the station both now and into the future.”
