Perth car park to temporarily close just seven months after £1.7 million revamp

Canal Street multi-storey car park is among those included.
Canal Street multi-storey car park is among those included.

A multi-storey car park which was the subject of a £1.7 million revamp last year is to close again for remedial works.

The Canal Street car park will close at 10pm on Saturday night and reopen at the same time on Sunday night.

Perth and Kinross Council say the closure is necessary to allow them to undertake “snagging works”, though they declined to reveal what this would entail.

A spokeswoman for the local authority said: “As we previously said in November there are still elements of the refurbishment to be completed, and there will be limited, periodical closures to Canal Street Car Park to allow for the final works to be completed.

“Snagging works are usual on a project of this size and next weekend’s closure is for works such as relining to be carried out.

“Canal Street Car Park in Perth will be temporarily closing from 10pm on Saturday June 17 until 10pm on Sunday June 18.

“The closure is due to snagging works following on from the successful £1.7 million refurbishment of the car park last year.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but the closure is necessary to allow the works remaining to be completed quickly and safely.

“Parking in Perth and Kinross Council’s pay and display bays, both on street and within their car parks is free on Sundays so we are sure that there will be somewhere convenient for you to park as an alternative to Canal Street for this short period of time.”

The car park reopened in November, having been closed for almost a month, but was not fully operational until December.

Improvements to the site included a new Pay on Foot system, wider parking bays, improved lighting and charging points for four electric cars.

Prior to the extensive modernisation of the nine-storey building, two levels had been put out of use due to their condition. The revamp was part of a wider plan
to encourage more shoppers into the city centre.
