A £200,000 investment has brought 116 new ‘park and share’ spaces to Loughbrickland, Banbridge and Clough.
Park and share car parks have been recently completed at Loughbrickland and Banbridge, with the existing park and share facility at Clough on the Newcastle Road extended.
The Loughbrickland site is located at Greenan Road with 37 spaces.
The Banbridge site is on the Rathfriland Road at Tullyear Terrace with 62 spaces.
The Clough site has been doubled in size to provide 34 spaces.
“The public is encouraged to use these new facilities to park their vehicles and travel onwards in a shared vehicle to their place of work or study,” said a spokesperson for the Department of Infrastructure.
“This reduces congestion, improves journey times and is better for the environment.”
The Department for Infrastructure will continue to identify further park and share sites and is liaising with Translink to identify additional opportunities to develop park and ride sites on key commuting corridors which will be served by the Ulsterbus and Goldline services.
