Bath car park to close for maintenance work

A car park in Bath will close for four weeks next month so the council can make the road surface water resistant.

Manvers Street car park will shut from Monday 17 February.

The work will focus on reducing "surface water ponding" and providing a water-resistant surface across the whole upper level parking area, the vehicle ramp to the lower level and stairways.

BANES Council say it's needed to protect the car park for future use and prevent structural damage.

Councillor Joanna Wright, cabinet member for Transport Services, said: “Manvers Street car park is an important facility for people who need to drive into the centre of Bath so we are carrying out these essential works to protect the car park and avoid unplanned closures in future.

"We apologise for any inconvenience while the works are being carried out.

“Although we encourage walking, cycling and public transport for residents and visitors travelling into Bath, where drivers do need to use their cars we hope these improvements will make this facility easier for people to use.”

Whilst the car park is closed the council say they will also make several other changes including installing new LED lighting on the lower level, repainting the white lines on the upper level and clearly marking pedestrian walkways on the upper level.

They will also install a height restriction barrier to the ramp leading to the lower level to reduce the potential impact of damage.
