Workington car park to close for major improvement works

Wednesday, 11 May 2016

Brow Top car park in Workington is to close for seven weeks from Monday 16 May 2016 while major improvement works are carried out.

The entire car park is being resurfaced, the central reservation will be remodelled, the lighting improved and the footpaths redesigned. Nine new disabled parking spaces and a bus drop-off point will also be included. As well as improving the site, the new design has been created to give drivers easier access and improve traffic flow.

An access road through the car park, leading from the underpass next to Wilko through to Allerdale House, will remain open throughout the works, though motorists are warned their route through the site will change while the work takes place. They are also asked to keep a close eye out for construction traffic.

The closest alternative car park is Central Station Car Park, on Central Way. Permit holders can continue to use their passes in this long stay car park.

Councillor Michael Heaslip, Allerdale Borough Council’s Executive member for locality services, said: “These improvements will be very welcome in this busy town centre car park and should provide far easier access for everyone using it, not least disabled people.

“The improvements are well timed as the Brow Top car park will be the main parking area for the new leisure centre and swimming pool in Workington, which is due to open this Summer. The creation of a coach-drop off area should prove invaluable for visiting sports clubs too. I look forward to seeing the results of the work.”
