Shrewsbury park and ride site still closed off after travellers leave site
A Shrewsbury park and ride site was still not in use this morning following the departure of a group of travellers.
The Shropshire Star visited the Meole Brace park and ride on Tuesday to be greeted by closed barriers on the approach road.
A spokesman for Shropshire Council said the site will remain closed until the site has been cleaned and any repairs carried out.
But the council's spokesman did not estimate a time for the re-opening.
The spokesman said: "The Meole park and ride site will remain closed until the site has been cleaned and any repairs carried out."
He confirmed that the town's two other park and ride services at Harlescott and Oxon are – and have been - operating as normal.
At Meole this morning there were signs of rubbish on the huge car park where buses normally pick up passengers to ferry them on their journeys into the town centre.
The regular buses are run by Arriva and its app this morning was not showing any services running.
The park and ride site was suspended last Wednesday due to a large number of travellers on the site.
They were served with an eviction notice at the weekend.
A spokesman for Shropshire Council said on Monday: "The travellers vacated the Meole Brace park and ride site over the weekend."
The spokesman said he would advise when they expect the park and ride service to begin operating again.
The council also confirmed that a group of travellers has also vacated the Eco Park site in Ludlow.
Shropshire Council has been asked for an update on the site.
