Two multi-storey car parks in Jersey are due to be refurbished this autumn, the Department for Infrastructure have confirmed.

A number of improvements will be made to the car parks at Minden Place and First Tower, with work starting this September.

The States of Jersey hope to, where possible, widen bays and alter the layouts to make spaces easier to access. This will mean a reduction from 262 spaces to 237 spaces.

There will also be new undercover space for four bicycles and the area for motorcycle parking will be increased by 20%, allowing for an extra 15 motorcycles to be parked.

The Department for Infrastructure is also making improvements to disabled parking bays and increasing the amount of ‘parent and child spaces’.

Minden Place car park will close for four weeks initially with replacement parking to be made available at Ann Court car park.

We are trying to improve Minden Place car park for users by making spaces more accessible and user friendly where we can, given the constraints of our oldest multi-storey.

– Deputy Eddie Noel, Minister for Infrastructure commented

The project will run over a 14 week period, finishing at the end of December.

At the same time DFL will be undertaking minor refurbishment work in First Tower car park.

The States of Jersey say the car park will remain open, with the most disruptive part of the work taking place during the October half term.
