Overnight closures set for Lucy Tower car park

Lucy Tower Street car park in Lincoln will be closed overnight for a month to allow for more works.

The car park in the city centre, which was closed for nine months due to structural repairs, will close overnight for four weeks between 10pm and 7pm from Monday, March 3.

The closures will allow workmen to complete the structural repairs to the car park, which closed in March 2013 for resurfacing but then also needed corroded steel repaired.

The City of Lincoln Council reopened the car park partially in December in time for the Christmas Market, and have just reopened the car park for use at weekends too.

Rod Williamson, City Services Team Leader, said: “We would like to thank people for their continued patience while the extensive refurbishment work is carried out.

“We are nearing the end of the work and are hopeful the work may be completed sooner than expected.

“The overnight closures are necessary to allow contractors to carry out work on the ceilings of levels one and two.

“We would remind people they can park in the nearby car park in Orchard Street after 10pm.”

A member of staff will be at the car park until midnight to advise drivers of alternative parking, and cars will be able to exit Lucy Tower after 10pm.

This work is part of the final stage of repairs at the 458-space car park.
