TRAVEL ALERT - Car parks at Redditch's Arrow Valley Country Park set to close for resurfacing

Redditch Editorial 27th Jun, 2024   0

TWO CAR parks at Arrow Valley Country Park are set to close so they can be resurfaced.

The work is part of an ongoing programme of improvements which have been going on since April.

As part of Redditch Borough Council’s larger car park improvement scheme, the area on Battens Drive will be shut for three days from July 8 so it can be resurfaced and repainted.

This is the final stage of upgrades for the Battens Drive car parks that saw the entrance to the country park reconfigured to allow for a better flow of traffic.

Redditch Borough Council’s interim head of environment and property services, Simon Parry, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience that these works cause for the week, though we are pleased that this project has already had a positive impact.

“The reconfigured access has already proved beneficial to the park, and we hope this next stage will only continue the success we’ve seen so far with the new and improved parking provision.”

Additionally, the car park on Proctors Barn Lane, up the ramp through the height barrier, will be closed, also in the week beginning July 8, to be resurfaced as part of the scheme.

Mr Parry added: “Arrow Valley is an incredibly popular location in the town, and we know how important car parks are to allowing residents a stress free visit, this ongoing work to improve our car parks is important to maintain our town as a destination.”

Arrow Valley Countryside Park has a variety of different car parking options, and alternative parking options for Arrow Valley are available to view here.
