The site opened in April 2002 with 300 car parking spaces. There had been considerable opposition from local residents. The site was expanded in 2008 to provide 830 car parking spaces to coincide with the opening of the Cabot Circus shopping mall in Broadmead. Up until April 2007 services were operated by First. Currently, services are provided by CT Plus.
