Norwich Postwick park & ride site expansion works due to begin next week

Work to extend the Postwick Park and Ride site will begin on Monday 22 April 2013. Construction will be carried out for Norfolk County Council by Birse Civils Ltd.

The existing Park and Ride site is one of the smallest of the six around Norwich and the expansion will allow the number of parking spaces to increase from 500 to 1000.

The extension of the site already has planning consent, but this lapses in May this year, so work will start on construction of the access road to protect the existing planning consent and avoid the need and cost of going through the planning application process again. Extension of the car park itself is expected to be carried out in 2015. Cost of the initial work is approximately £50,000.

The majority of the works will be off highway and delays are not anticipated for general traffic or users of the existing Park and Ride site.
