CAR parking is set to be improved at Barassie Train Station, writes Stewart McConnell.

A draft design has been put together for increasing the number of spaces following an ongoing campaign for action.

Residents are concerned that people going to the station are encroaching on their space. The move has been made by Ayrshire Roads Alliance.

Councillor Bob Pollock said: “I have been contacted from people in that area about damage to pavements and drives being blocked.

“There is a public consultation ongoing at the moment and we definitely need to improve car parking in that area.”

Councillor Peter Convery agreed that action was needed. He has long been campaigning for action and has had complaints from residents about the situation.
