Gorge Connect Park & Ride

25.07.2012

McPhillips has recently completed the new Gorge Connect Park & Ride scheme at Lightmoor for Telford & Wrekin Council in time for the Olympic Torch Relay in Ironbridge Gorge.  The new facility occupies a total of 27,000m2 providing 250 car parking spaces, 16 disabled bays and a motorcycle parking area. Over 2000 tonnes of tarmac was used in its construction and a new gated access has been provided onto the A4169. 868 trees and shrubs were planted with the surrounding area being landscaped. Three solar & wind powered lighting columns were installed and the bus stop is lit using electricity stored from solar panels on the roof.
