It’s just ‘daily cleaning’: Council rejects reports of peeling paint in new Lincoln car park

Paint is not peeling off Lincoln’s new multi-million pound car park, said the City of Lincoln Council.

The council was responding to reports circulating online indicating that a section of the 1,000 space Lincoln Central Car Park car park on Broadgate was closed off due to ‘lifting paint’.

In a statement, the council said an area of the first floor of the car park had been closed off, on Tuesday but that it was for “daily cleaning”.

The Lincolnite found a significant section of the second floor was closed off on Thursday. The council said that was for cleaning purposes as well.

A portion on the second floor was closed on Thursday, February 22

The car park opened in November last year as part of the £30 million Lincoln Transport Hub.

City Services Team Leader at City of Lincoln Council, Rod Williamson, said: “We love our new car park and so do our users. Feedback has been amazing. This is why we have been cleaning it daily over the winter months.

“This provides our users with the best possible experience. The car park has been built to the highest of specifications and that includes the paintwork, which is performing perfectly.”
