St Johns Station car park closures

Thanks to Cllr Foxcroft, for sharing this news from Southeastern Trains with us. The closures should have some knock-on effects on parking in surrounding streets:

As part of the Thameslink Programme, Network Rail is carrying out essential engineering work in the vicinity of St Johns Station between March 2012 and June 2013. At certain times it will be necessary to close this car park to allow works to be undertaken.

Closure of the car park will take place between the following dates

-  00:01hrs on 13th January 2012 to 11:59hrs on 29th January 2012
-  00:01hrs on 9th March 2012 to 11:59hrs on 11th March 2012
-  00:01hrs on 30th March 2012 to 11:59hrs on 6th July 2012

Southeastern and Network Rail apologises to local residents and rail users for the inconvenience this may cause and would appreciate their assistance by ensuring their vehicles are not parked in this car park during above dates. Should it become necessary to remove your vehicle, this will be carried out at the owners risk and cost.

If you would like to know more about our work and how you might be affected we will be holding a residents’information drop in session.  The team of experts who are working in this area will be available to answer any questions you may have.

The event will take place on Thursday 5 January from 3pm to 7pm, at St Johns Church, St Johns Vale, London SE8 4EA on the corner of St. John's Vale and Lewisham Way– see map below).
