Expansion for Drumahoe Park and Ride
Regional Development Minister, Danny Kennedy, has announced a £250,000 extension to the Drumahoe Park and Ride facility at Drumahoe.
The scheme will provide an additional 150 car park spaces, increasing the capacity to 271 spaces.
Planning Permission has been granted for the scheme, which is due to commence in mid-October and be completed by January.
“The Park and Ride at Drumahoe has proven very popular with occupancy rates well over 80 per cent. In addition, the site can be used to park and ride into the city with the many events planned for City of Culture 2013. This scheme, costing £250,000, is indicative of the support by government to ensure the success of the Derry/Londonderry City of Culture 2013,” he said.
The larger facility will enable Translink to consider enhancing the level of service to the Drumahoe site. The site, which currently facilitates Translink Goldline services to Belfast, will have the potential to enable journeys into the city as well as acting as a park and ride site for the many events planned to be held for City of Culture 2013. Little or no disruption to the service has been promised.
