Car park plan revealed for Walkden station

December 3, 2016

stationcarparknews002We were delighted with the confirmation this week that Salford City Council have agreed to make the old council depot site on Chestnut Lane available to TfGM as a dedicated station car and bicycle park.

With the disruption caused to our neighbours by on-street parking, and the ever increasing problem of congestion-related pollution, we believe this is great news for passengers and residents alike.

FoWS have been working with TfGM and local councillors to bring this to fruition, and we want to say a huge “Thank You” to everyone who’s helped to make it happen.

Keeping public land in public ownership and utilising it for public good is not an easy trick to pull off these days, so a special thank you to City Mayor Paul Dennett, Walkden councillors Richard Critchley, Iain Lindley, and Roger Jones, and Owain Roberts from the Rail Team at TfGM !
