Facelift at Hereford car park prompts lift closure
3:53pm Monday 3rd September 2012 in Hereford City
A LIFT and staircase at one of Hereford’s busiest car parks is set to be closed for almost two months.
Herefordshire Council says refurbishment work at the Garrick multi-storey means the lift and staircase closest to the entrance on Widemarsh Street will be shut from September 17.
The authority says the work is being carried out now to ensure it is finished before the start of Christmas shopping.
“We recognise that this will be disruptive and will cause inconvenience to car park users,” said Councillor Graham Powell, cabinet member for education and infrastructure.
“The council apologises for the inconvenience, but the work does need to be done and we have tried to minimise the impact of the lift and staircase closures.
“I think people will be pleased with the new lifts and the improvements to the staircases once the work has finished.”
Work is expected to be completed by November 9.
