Lincoln bus station car park to close for 5 weeks for resurfacing

The Thornbridge Car Park above the bus station and Co-op shopping centre in Lincoln will close for up to five weeks as essential maintenance works are carried out.

The car park will be shut to all traffic from February 11 as the City of Lincoln Council, which runs the car park, needs to carry out resurfacing works.

The work is set to cost some £400,000.

The bus station and shops below the car park will continue to operate as normal throughout the works, but the car park itself will be closed off for safety reasons.

Steve Bird, the City of Lincoln Council’s Assistant Director for Communities and Street Scene, said: “While we appreciate this is a busy car park in the city centre, these works are vital, not only to ensure we maintain the integrity of the building, but for the continued operation of the shops below.

“The council is investing in the order of £400,000 into upgrading the key areas of the car park’s surface as we want people to be able to use Thornbridge safely.

“We are sorry for any temporary inconvenience this will cause, but investing money into this local car park will encourage people to continue to park local and shop local.”
