Lowestoft is also at an extremity of the National Rail network. (Lowestoft is the furthest east station, Arisaig is the most westerly - slightly further west than Mallaig)

Bristol Parkway also built next to a major road as a park and ride, rather than serving an adjacent community.
Pudsey and Farsley are both within walking distance of New Pudsey, but the A6120 and A647 roads are nearer.
The term Parkway originally referred to a nearby park.
