Town Basin car park temporary closure

Published on 05 April 2023

Map showing closure of car park in Town Basin.

The main Town Basin car park will be closed to all vehicles from Tuesday 11 April until September 2023.

This is to allow contractors to complete the final stages of the bus facilities upgrade, update the lighting and re-align the car park. Pedestrian access will still be open, and the current location of the accessible parking will remain in place outside the toilets.

Tourist bus parking will be temporarily located down Dent St, opposite Frings Bar and Eatery.

The upgrade to Town Basin facilities includes safer bus stops for tour buses and cruise ship buses, new public toilets near the playground, upgraded car parks, and more mobility-friendly parking.
