Work begins to create new spaces at Gainsborough car park

Work to add extra spaces to Bridge Street Car Park in Gainsborough is due to get underway this week.

The work will create an additional 29 spaces and is expected to take four weeks to complete.

Alternative parking options are available during the demolition and build of Gainsborough’s new hotel, which is expected to take 48 weeks.

They will be displayed both in the Roseway Car Park itself and on West Lindsey District Council’s website.

The car parking strategy also aims to deliver:

  • New long stay car parking at the former Lidl site from November 2017
  • 30 new spaces in the Roseway Car Park by September 2018
  • A further 140 car parking spaces across the town as the town centre develops from 2020

The new Lidl store will also provide a further 125 spaces free for 90 mins from November 2017.

Councillor Sheila Bibb, chairman of the Prosperous Communities Committee at West Lindsey District Council, said: “These extra spaces in Bridge Street will be welcomed by traders and shoppers alike, and will help alleviate any issues caused by the temporary loss of spaces in the Roseway Car Park while the new Travelodge is being built.”
