Trenchard Street Works:
Following structural and condition surveys at Trenchard Street car park, major refurbishment works are now to take place as part of a ten year Life Care Plan. These works will involve the entire car park, which will be kept open throughout the works, with as little disruption and as little reduction in capacity as is possible.
The works will begin on Monday 21st January and take about nine months.
Phase one - Levels 1 and 2, these works will last for four weeks, and require the closure of both levels and the Level 2 entry/exit point from Trenchard Street.
Access to the car park during these four weeks will be via the Level 5 entrances off Lodge Street. Exit will be via the Level 8 exits onto Park Row. The Disabled bays on Level 1 will be relocated during this time to Level 8 (which also has level access to the street) adjacent to the disabled bays on that floor; on completion of this phase they will be reinstated at Level 1 . All other users of Level 1 and 2 will be asked to park elsewhere in the car park.
The Electric Vehicle Charging Points will be inaccessible during this phase, with drivers of electric vehicles having the choice of using College Street and West End car parks.
