Lincoln Thornbridge car park reopened after delayed works

The Thornbridge Car Park in Lincoln city centre reopened on Wednesday, April 24, after a delay in repair works.

The car park, above the central Lincoln bus station, closed in February for five weeks so essential resurfacing works worth £400,000 could be carried out.

However, due to the cold and snowy weather, the repair work had to be put on hold.

This is because in order for contractors Lindum Construction to lay the waterproof membrane, they needed drier conditions, over 5°C.

City Services Team Leader Rod Williamson said: “We are pleased that Thornbridge Car Park is back and open for business.

“We appreciate how patient people were during the closure, and apologise for the delay, which we could not have predicted.

“The car park has seen a steady flow of cars already this morning which is good to see.

“Thornbridge will now be part of our Monday discount scheme where people using the PayByPhone scheme will be eligible for a 25% discount on any tariff that day.”

Meanwhile, the Lucy Tower multistorey car park on Brayford Pool remains closed for maintenance works until August.
