New-look for iconic car park

Thursday, 23rd March 2017

The car park levels at Preston Bus Station have been given a new look, as part of the major redevelopment of the site.

The upper car park levels have reopened following a comprehensive update which includes wider spaces, new lighting, car park surfaces, payment machines and security cameras. The work has also included concrete repairs and other related improvements.

County Councillor Jennifer Mein, leader of the county council, said: "This is another step forward for our redevelopment of the building, which will make the car park levels more welcoming and encourage more people to use them.

"Similar work will be carried out on the other levels to renovate the entire car park. I'm sure that people will see a big difference.

"It's a big challenge to carry out this work while the building is still open, but we hope that people will bear with us while it's being done. We're doing everything we can to keep the disruption to a minimum.

"There's a lot of work going on in the building, especially around the concourse, as we improve this listed building for everyone who uses it."

New safety fencing has also been installed as part of the work, to reduce the number of incidents on the car park levels.

The wider plans for the bus station also include a new stand-alone building to house a new Youth Zone, which is being developed in collaboration with On Side Youth Zones.

The concourse is currently being improved and a new public square will be created on the existing bus apron on the city centre side, improving access for people using the bus station.

The work has been carried out by Conlon Construction based in Bamber Bridge, and Keepmoat Construction.
