Overnight closures for final repairs to Lucy Tower car park

Final hurdle: Lucy Tower will be closed overnight for a month during final repair works to the car park.

The Lucy Tower car park in Lincoln will be closed overnight for a month while final repair work is carried out.

The overnight closures will begin from Monday, January 20, lasting until Thursday, February 20.

Access to the car park will stop at 8pm each evening and commence again from 7am the following day.

Motorists arriving before 8pm will still be able to exit the car park during the closure.

The city centre car park was partially reopened at the beginning of December 2013 and, since then, work has continued on site to complete the works.

According to City of Lincoln Council, 26,378 pay and display tickets have been sold since the car park reopened on December 5.

Rod Williamson, City Services Team Leader, said: “We are nearing the end of these essential works and need to carry out final repairs that will require the car park to be closed overnight.

“We would like to thank people for their patience so far and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. The end is now in sight and we look forward to reopening the whole car park in the very near future.”

A member of staff from the city council will be on site until midnight to advise drivers of alternative parking at Orchard Street.

This work will form part of the final stage of repairs at the car park, which was closed last year for essential maintenance.
