80 new free parking spaces are coming to Linlithgow turn centre under plans announced recently. Spaces will be created at Linlithgow Sports Club off the Edinburgh Road and an extension to the St Ninians car park, mainly for coaches.
Parking in the town has long been a concern that I have heard from local residents in the doorsteps and people will not doubt be welcoming these moves. If it comes along with continued improvements in public transportation provision for the town it will really help Linlithgow to combat climate change. These new car parking spaces are within easy walking distance of the train station and with increased ease of taking the train more people should be encouraged to leave the car at home at make the bulk of their journey to work by rail.
