Due to essential flood mitigation and flood defence works to the north and south banks of the River Avon there has been a change in operation of the Riverside Coach Park from a parking facility to a drop-off/pick-up facility only.
Coach parking has been relocated to the First Bus Weston Island depot. Please note, coaches will only be able to enter this site with just the driver on board, all passengers must be dropped off at Riverside Coach Park before driving on to Weston Island.
Weston Island will only be open for coach parking between the hours of 09.30 and 18.00. If you choose not to park at this location then it is the drivers responsibility to find safe, legal and suitable alternative coach parking elsewhere around the city.
Drivers will be able to park in Riverside Coach park overnight for free between the hours of 18.00 and 08.00.
The Riverside coach park cafe and toilets will remain open for use.
