Metal railings will go up as part of a £500,000 expansion project to expand park and ride at a busy commuter rail station near Birmingham, it has been reported.

The development, at Whitlock's End near Shirley, will see the addition of improved barriers, CCTV, help stations, better lighting and cycle locker provision, reports.

In addition, a further 164 parking spaces, including 14 disabled bays, will boost the station's parking provision up to 275 spaces.

With work due to begin at the end of April, it is hoped the revamped station will be open in time for late summer.

Chairman councillor Angus Adams said: “This is excellent news for rail users, commuters and the environment."

"Park and ride is a very popular scheme and we are delighted to be able to continue this good work by providing even more spaces at Whitlock’s End," the website reported.

Recently, it was reported that parking barriers will be installed to replace pay-and-display systems at three car parks in Douglas, Isle of Man.

Ticket machines will also be installed to make the car park more user-friendly, Douglas Borough council said.
