Repair work to city centre multi-storey car park set to get underway
The upper floors of the multi-storey car park on Birmingham Road in Lichfield will be closed for around four weeks during the short programme of repairs.
The purpose of the work is to replace existing waterproofing on the top deck of the car park, carry out some concrete repairs, treat small areas of corroded steelwork, and repair recent damage to a section of wall on the ground floor level.
Site set up will start on Monday 24 May 2021 with repair work starting on Tuesday 1 June. To make way for works, the upper three levels of the car park - levels 4, 5 and 6 - will be closed from Tuesday 1 June but the rest of the car park will remain open.
Councillor Liz Little, Cabinet Member responsible for Major Projects, said:
“The benefits of carrying out these repairs will be an improved experience for anyone using the car park as well as extending the life-span of the structure until we fully develop our plans for the larger Birmingham Road site as part of the Lichfield City Centre masterplan.
“We hope the closure of the upper three floors of the car park won’t cause regular users and other visitors to the city centre too much disruption.”
