Queen Street access


This project involves the delineation and upgrade of an access into the Queen Street car park from the main arterial route and the redesigned layout of the car park to improve legibility to the town.

From Tuesday 7 May 2024, work is starting to resurface and redesign Queen Street and Bear Street car parks. Queen Street car park will close from this date, and is expected to reopen when the works are completed in autumn 2024.

Bear Street car park will be open for business as normal and once Queen Street reopens, Bear Street will be resurfaced.

Works to the car park include:

  • a new vehicular access provided off Alexandra Road
  • improved layout and surface to provide one large car park
  • with new lighting and landscaping
  • improved pedestrian walkways to Boutport Street, Queens Walk and Bear Street
