Resurfacing for Market car park ramps

By Mike Cotton, Town Reporter Friday 16th May 2014

RESURFACING of the ramps at the market multi-storey car park will take place this week, even though the car park may soon be demolished.

Leader of the council Sir Steve Houghton said a decision had yet to be made on whether to keep the car park when the market is refurbished, but said even if it were to be demolished, it will still be needed for the next '18-months or two years' so essential maintenance cannot be ignored.

The ramps, which are often used by vehicles as a shortcut through town, will be closed during working hours, 6pm to 5am, for one week beginning on Monday.

The car park will be open as normal during the day.
