Improvement works at Chesil multi-storey car park

Press Release: 25/07/2016

Chesil Multi Storey

Winchester City Council is conducting essential maintenance to improve the Chesil multi-storey car park (MSCP). The works are due to start on Monday 8 August.


Resurfacing work is necessary on the decks of the car park, which is located at Barfield Close. The on-going program of works will commence on the decks of floors 1 and 2. The car park will be in use throughout the works with parking to floors 3 and above. 99 bays out of a total of 598 standard bays will be affected.


A letter has gone out to local residents and businesses in the area informing them of the resurfacing. The works involve removal of the car park surface by mechanical means which will cause some noise at the beginning of the project. The new surface coat application will be applied by hand and therefore should be a quiet process. The works are planned to take no longer than four weeks and must take place during fine weather.


Cllr James Byrnes, Portfolio Holder for Transport and Professional Services said:

The works being carried out at Chesil multi-storey demonstrates that the Council is investing in city centre car parks. The new surface will extend the life and quality of the structure as well as making the spaces more visually defined assisting those who are sight impaired.

The works are being undertaken in August as this is the period when use of the car park is at its lowest. Recent surveys carried out show that there is capacity with more than 99 spaces available daily at peak times.
