Work to begin on new passenger building at Boughton Heath Park & Ride site

Cheshire West and Chester Council is to start building a new passenger waiting amenities at its busiest Park and Ride site at Boughton Heath, Chester.

Construction work will begin on the new building in November 2020 and will be completed in Spring 2021.  The area will be temporarily fenced-off while the work takes place so there will be minimal disturbance to passengers as the project progresses.

An artist’s impression has been released showing how the new building will look, which will house a new comfortable passenger waiting area, toilets and ticket machines.

The Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment, Highways and Strategic Transport, Councillor Karen Shore said: “Boughton Heath is our busiest Park & Ride site and the new building will mean passengers are able to purchase tickets and wait for buses protected from the weather.

“Bike lockers will also be included as part of the project for anyone wishing to cycle to and from the Park & Ride site, which supports the Council’s Walk. Ride. Thrive initiative.”

“Our Park & Ride service is a fast, safe way to get into the city centre and is now half price, at just £1, until January 2021.  Also, NHS staff showing their ID badge can travel free from our Upton site.”
