Car park works at Dunfermline Queen Margaret on 29 & 30 September

Monday, 18 September 2017

Fife Council, in partnership with the ScotRail Alliance, is pleased to announce a jointly funded project to provide an additional 25 car parking spaces at Dunfermline Queen Margaret station.

Customers are set to benefit from the new spaces as early as next month, which will provided much needed additional capacity at the busy West Fife station. The station will be open as usual during the works, which will take place over two consecutive weekends: 23 & 24 September and 30 September & 1 October.

Welcoming the improvement, the City of Dunfermline Area Convener Councillor Helen Law said:

“I am happy to see additional parking spaces being delivered at Dunfermline Queen Margaret Station to meet increasing commuter demand. This will be a great benefit to the local community. I am pleased funding from the City of Dunfermline Area capital budget helped to secure the additional partnership funding that was required from the ScotRail Alliance.”

The ScotRail Alliance’s programmes and transformation director, Ian McConnell, said:

“We’re building the best railway Scotland has ever had, and improved facilities for customers at our stations is a huge part of this.

“These additional spaces, combined with longer trains, more seats and better services, will all help us to achieve our aim of reducing the carbon footprint from door to door.”

The station car park will be closed during the two weekends of improvement works, and Fife Council apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Customers are encouraged to walk or cycle to the station and leave their cars at home while the work is taking place.

Anyone who is arriving at the station by car should allow extra time to catch their train, and are asked to use the ‘park and walk’ facility at Bellyeoman Park.
