Construction of a new station car park at Uckfield should be complete by early summer with an opening scheduled for mid July.
The date was given to UckfieldNews.com by Network Rail.
Townspeople have been wondering when the exact date would be after signs went up on the hoardings saying “Opening Soon”.
When complete there will be 174 spaces and cycle storage too.
It will be open 24 hours a day and there will be full CCTV coverage and lighting. The lighting will be dimmed when nobody is in the car park at night but as somebody walks in the lights will turn up again.
This will be the town’s first pay car park and is designed to help free spaces on the Luxford Field car park for shoppers.
Wealden District Council is to bring in tighter time restrictions on the Luxford car park once the new station car park opens. There will be short stay spaces for three hour periods and mid-stay places available for ten hours, an hour longer than the nine hours originally envisaged.
