Parking charges cut at Watford Junction

Commuters using Watford Junction station are celebrating a rare bit of good news – after car parking charges were cut.

Station owner London Midland has announced that prices will fall at its 724 space car park from Monday, May 23.

The decision comes after a nationwide review, which has resulted in increased prices in many other parts of the country.

A spokeswoman said: “We have ample parking facilities at Watford Junction and we want to encourage more people to ‘park and ride’.

“The Peak daily charge is reducing from £8 to £7. Off-Peak charges will also be reduced from £5 to £4.50. Season Ticket charges are not reducing but have been frozen.”

How about reducing it to a more reasonable £4-£5 at weekends to encourage more people to use the train rather than driving to London.

so at the reduced £7 a day the equivalent annual cost would be about £1,400 x 724 means that the car park on weekdays raises about £1 million! Mind you Newcastle station charges £15 a day. In Derby it is cheaper to join the David lloyd health club adjacent to the station as the annual fee is less than the station car park.
