6 Transport Mode – Rail (preferred solution) Existing Slough – Windsor rail link Dedicated heavy rail option Frequency of service (6 per hour) Capacity (minimum of three carriages) New station at Park & Ride Existing station at Windsor Central Various track-work options Future operating arrangements Existing Slough – Windsor rail link Dedicated heavy rail option Frequency of service (6 per hour) Capacity (minimum of three carriages) New station at Park & Ride Existing station at Windsor Central Various track-work options Future operating arrangements

7 Transport Mode – Bus (alternative solution) Fleet of dedicated Park & Ride buses 7 no. buses – Approx. Frequency of service (every 15 minutes) Limited Scope for bus priority measures Fleet of dedicated Park & Ride buses 7 no. buses – Approx. Frequency of service (every 15 minutes) Limited Scope for bus priority measures

8 Finance – Capital Total Project cost – circa. £19m (Capital Outlay) -Car park / access / highway works – circa £8m -Rail / station works – circa. £6m -Fees / direct RBWM costs – circa. £5m (Note: costs based on construction in 2010/11) Funding sources –SEERA (Regional Transport funding from DfT):£7m –Olympic development Agency: To Be confirmed –RBWM Corporate funding:£1m –Developer contributions Subject to appropriate development –Other agencies / partners Negotiations not commenced CAPITAL DEFICIT: £11m Total Project cost – circa. £19m (Capital Outlay) -Car park / access / highway works – circa £8m -Rail / station works – circa. £6m -Fees / direct RBWM costs – circa. £5m (Note: costs based on construction in 2010/11) Funding sources –SEERA (Regional Transport funding from DfT):£7m –Olympic development Agency: To Be confirmed –RBWM Corporate funding:£1m –Developer contributions Subject to appropriate development –Other agencies / partners Negotiations not commenced CAPITAL DEFICIT: £11m

9 Finance – Revenue Potential Demand -Currently 300 – 400 spaces (based on review / projection of car park usage patterns) -Circa. 800 spaces (based on typical interception rate of between 2.9 – 6%) -Future growth and additional capacity required for Windsor Revenue Costs –Rail or bus based facility:£1m per annum Revenue Generation -Parking income: increase by raising tariffs and generating demand OPERATING DEFICIT: £275K (PER ANNUM) Experience of Park & Ride facilities elsewhere is that direct positive financial returns are rare and Break Even is often the best case. Subsidies are common. Significant non-cashable benefits are realised Potential Demand -Currently 300 – 400 spaces (based on review / projection of car park usage patterns) -Circa. 800 spaces (based on typical interception rate of between 2.9 – 6%) -Future growth and additional capacity required for Windsor Revenue Costs –Rail or bus based facility:£1m per annum Revenue Generation -Parking income: increase by raising tariffs and generating demand OPERATING DEFICIT: £275K (PER ANNUM) Experience of Park & Ride facilities elsewhere is that direct positive financial returns are rare and Break Even is often the best case.

11 Planning / Land Planning Strategy –Significant Planning Constraints exist –Overall policy to support park and ride ….Success will rest upon the ability to demonstrate that park and ride is the most sustainable option and the overall benefits of development outweigh the harm to the site… Land -Appropriate site must be secured -Lammas rights to be resolved Planning Strategy –Significant Planning Constraints exist –Overall policy to support park and ride ….Success will rest upon the ability to demonstrate that park and ride is the most sustainable option and the overall benefits of development outweigh the harm to the site… Land -Appropriate site must be secured -Lammas rights to be resolved
