10/02/16 - Parking in Worcestershire

Great news for bikers in Worcesterhire:

 Following meetings between Worcestershire County Council and MAG, the Council agreed to provide at least one “primary” secure parking location for PTW's in all Worcestershire towns with a minimum of 5 but preference for 10 secure PTW parking bays to MAG standards.

 The Council have undertaken an audit of PTW parking in the county.

 The results of the audit can be found here:

 Worcester, Bromsgrove and Kidderminster are deemed to be adequately covered with locations at St Martin's Gate, Parkside and Market Street respectively.

 The proposed locations for the primary PTW parking in other towns is as follows:

Town Proposed Location(s)
Malvern Priory Road or Grange Road
Pershore Broad Street or Leisure Centre
Evesham Swan Street or new riverside location
Droitwich Upgrade Covercroft and Ricketts Lane
Redditch New facility (possibly in Kingfisher Centre or in vicinity of Church Green
Bewdley  Legally formalise on street (Severnside South)
Stourport Severn Meadows
Upton-upon-Severn Riverside – adjacent to bridge?

  

  • The primary PTW parking area in each town is to be signposted.

  • All PTW parking in the County will be published on a new website (TravelWorcs) which is under construction and due for launch later this year.

 Additionally riverside parking for leisure riders is proposed for Bewdley, Stourport, Upton and Evesham.

The Council is keen to hear feedback and ideas on the suggested locations, so now is the time to make yourselves heard on what works for you. Please send any comments/suggestions to cbrown@mag-uk.org . All comments will be collated and fed back to the Council.

Please join us in thanking Worcestershire County Council for this initiative which will help to put PTW's clearly on the map in Worcestershire.
