Residents are reporting problems parking in Effingham Junction station car park, as it is now mainly full from Tuesday to Thursday from mid-morning. The surface of the car park and the entrance are also poor. These problems will only worsen when the planned 295 new houses are built in the village in the next few years.
South Western Trains are undertaking a rolling programme of station car park improvements www.southwesternrailway.com/plan-my-journey/planned-improvements/car-park-improvements
A second floor (or deck) are being added to many station car parks where expansion on the ground floor is impossible as at Effingham. Farnham station’s car park was decked in 2016 although it is a larger car park than Effingham. As reported in GetSurrey here in November 2016.
Effingham Junction’s station car park has recently been surveyed by South Western Trains. EFFRA has been advised that the car park is more likely to be considered for improvement and expansion if residents are known to be in favour. We would welcome the views of residents as to whether expanding the car park would be a good idea or not, and will pass on the views of residents to South Western Trains.
