Changes to Station Car Park - Monday 25th September 2017

The current car park at the east end of Foxhall will close on Monday 25 September 2017.  GWR  have built a temporary car park on site.  It does not have as many spaces.  There is a reduction of around 100 spaces. 

GWR have therefore taken some space at Didcot Town Football Club, a fifteen-minute walk away.   The contract with the Club, does not allow for ad hoc daily parking and anyone using the alternative site needs to have a season ticket.  To encourage existing season ticket holders to switch they are offering them 12 months free parking (a saving of around £800). They are also offering customers without season tickets the option of buying a season ticket for £250 for the year, which is a saving of around £750.  This will free up 95 spaces at the station. 

The work on the MSCP will take 12 months to complete; it is jointly funded by OxLEP and will mean they can double car parking space at the station to 1800 spaces.  It will mean they can manage the additional demand for rail services that the new trains and improved timetable will bring.

Temporary Closure of Clifton Hampton Bridge from 9th October 2017 (for 10 days)
