A 33-week project to refurbish Green Street Car Park is to start next Monday (18 February).
Although there will still be public parking, the number of spaces in the multi-storey will be reduced as floors are closed to enable engineers to carry out the work.
Due to its nature, the work may be noisy and dusty at times, and acoustic barriers will be used to minimise the inconvenience to neighbours and car park users.
The project is part of Growth, Housing and Environment’s car park maintenance programme and will aim to extend the life of the car park and provide a better customer experience.
The work will include
- resurfacing the car park’s concrete decks
- cleaning, repairing and repainting the walls and stairwells
- renewing the lighting and electrical system, and
- replacing the external safety fence around the edge of the car park floors.
The size of the car park’s disabled parking spaces will also be increased as part of the project.
Ross Fearnley, Assistant Engineer, said: “We’re sorry for any problems that this disruption will cause but the refurbishment is necessary and will make the car park better for motorists.
“Over the years, the concrete decks at Green Street have suffered from salt ingress and now need to be waterproofed. The existing waterproof surfacing at the car park is past its design life and has started to fail.
“In order to extend the life of the car park, we plan to repair the concrete floors by overlaying them with a coloured new waterproof surface. We also intend to make a number of other improvements, including replacing the car park’s safety fence, and making the disabled spaced bigger.”
The project is expected to be completed by November.
Commuters who usually park at Green Street are advised to use Pier Road Car Park if they are unable to find a space. Information on gov.je will be updated to reflect the work.
