Drivers and rail passengers are being warned that York Station car park will have fewer spaces from Monday (31 July).
Sections of the long stay car park will be shut as construction work begins to transform the front of the station.
A spokesperson for LNER, which runs the station, said: “From 31st July, sections of the long stay car park will be closed resulting in fewer parking spaces.
“There’s no change to the location of the car park entrance but please allow extra time to find alternative parking, if needed.
“Alternative facilities can be found at Leeman Road – please search for postcode YO26 4ZD.
“Throughout the construction phase of the works, there will be no loss in the number of blue badge parking bays in the long stay car park and these will always be clearly marked.”
There is no impact on bike parking. Parking restrictions are being brought in on Queen Street too.
The York Station Gateway project is funded by by City of York Council, West Yorkshire Combined Authority and LNER, and work will take until 2025.
