The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead has today (Friday 16 December) opened a new multi-storey car park in Maidenhead, providing modern parking facilities to support the town’s ongoing growth and regeneration.
Vicus Way has 500 spaces over 10 levels, including 52 bays with fast chargers for electric vehicles to support the transition to sustainable travel, with the capacity to have further chargepoints added in future.
The car park is already open for short-stay day parking, though from January 2023 it will also be available for season ticket holders. Motorists can now apply for a three-month season ticket, at a lower price, to use at Vicus Way for the remainder of 2022/23. For more information and to apply, visit www.rbwm.gov.uk/parking
The car park is open 6am to 8pm, Monday to Sunday, with charges applying from 9am to 8pm. Day parking is via the RingGo cashless parking system, using zone code 37592. It is physically closed to vehicles and pedestrians from 8pm until 6am, due to its proximity to residential properties.
Councillor Phil Haseler, Cabinet member for planning, parking, highways and transport, said: “Maidenhead is a growing town, supported by major investment from the council and private sector, and Vicus Way brings a modern parking offer to support that exciting investment and regeneration, some of which involves redevelopment of our older car parks.
“Vicus Way is for everyone to use, including for day parking. With its edge-of-centre location and proximity to the railway station, it is intended longer-term for day commuters and town centre employees, supporting local businesses, freeing up other town centre parking for short stay use by shoppers, and providing an additional parking option for those using the Elizabeth Line from Maidenhead.”
As part of the car park project, a new zebra crossing was installed across Vicus Way, along with new footpaths on Vicus Way and Stafferton Way, to improve pedestrian access and safety in the area.
