The City of Lincoln Council insists planned repairs at Lucy Tower Street multi-storey car park are essential to safeguard the building's future. It will be closed for five months for engineers to replace steel supports and resurface lower levels. The structure will be propped up during the work.
This is the latest phase of a £1.4m maintenance programme which has already seen resurfacing and steelworks completed on the top floors. Although the structure is in no immediate danger officials say the work is necessary to prevent it deteriorating.
