London Midland's latest three new station car parks have been given the police's seal of safety approval.
Carparks at Tring, Leighton Buzzard, and Bletchley have been awarded the 'Park Mark' award, confirming they reach high safety standards covering lighting, CCTV, and road markings, to keep crime levels down.
All three car parks have had a total of 600 spaces added in projects jointly run and funded by London Midland and Network Rail. There are 220 more spaces at Bletchley, 200 at Tring, and 150 at Leighton Buzzard. The work is part of London Midland's £7 million investment in its stations, adding around 3,000 spaces across its network.
The 'Park Mark' award is made after a detailed inspection by British Transport Police, and is regularly reviewed in order for it to be renewed.
London Midland's commercial director Alex Hynes said: “In general, stations are amongst the safest public places, and it's important we make sure our passengers feel safe. As well as the investment that goes with Park Mark award, we have introduced security teams across our wider network and continue to work closely with British Transport Police.”
