Seacourt Park and Ride extension update - November 2019

Published: Thursday, 7th November 2019

Oxford City Council is working to provide additional parking spaces at Seacourt Park and Ride to ensure that it meets the needs of workers and visitors to the city.

The existing car-park at Seacourt consistently reaches full capacity. The extension, which is currently under construction, will provide 595 additional parking spaces that will help to reduce traffic and congestion on the Botley Road and into the city centre. Additionally there will be a new bus terminal and cycle storage. The work is being delivered in partnership with Oxford Direct Services.

The new facilities are due to open by the end of summer 2020. This is a major development and there will be some disruption to existing users as approximately 102 of the existing car-parking spaces are temporarily suspended to facilitate the construction works; mainly to provide an area for a contractors compound which is needed for site accommodation and the delivery and storage of heavy plant and materials. The existing site will however remain open throughout the construction period and parking permits are valid at all the park and ride sites.

We regret any inconvenience that the construction works may cause to the users of the existing car park.

Seacourt Park and Ride provides a convenient way to access the city centre without having to drive in. This much-needed extension will make Seacourt an even better facility for workers and visitors following the increase in capacity and will bring additional benefits by reducing city centre congestion, which will also help to reduce harmful vehicle emissions.
