Video shows the interior of Nottingham’s new Broadmarsh car park
A traffic light system letting people know what spaces are available among the state-of-the-art facilities at the new Broadmarsh parking lot – and this video provides a look inside.
The redeveloped Canal Street parking lot is ready and waiting to serve customers again from Monday, November 1.
The impressive facility has more than 1,200 parking spaces, as well as 81 electric charging points.
To help motorists see which parking spaces are free, a traffic light system will be used, with a red or green light visible above each space indicating whether or not it is occupied.
The old car park and bus station were demolished to make way for a new state-of-the-art facility.
Head of Council David Mellen, Head of Nottingham City Council, spoke to Nottinghamshire Live during a walk around the property on Friday 29 October.
He said: “It is packed with modern and modern facilities, great lighting and technology that will make it easy for people to find their space, even when it is busy.
“Knowing that people will have to drive downtown for a variety of reasons, we have created a parking lot here that matches our carbon neutral ambitions to be net zero by 2028, and we hope it will be full of people. using and recharging their electric vehicles.
“We’ve been working really hard with our contractors and it has coincided with some good improvements to the public realm that are yet to be completed, but we can see how great a place this will be.”
The car park will be open 24/7 with security at all times, as well as security cameras where it can be monitored at all times.
The parking prices were also unveiled.
The resort’s bus station is slated to open at the start of the new year.
This comes after it was reported that a lease had been made for the bus station ticket office.
Conditions had been agreed with a retailer to take other units in the lobby of the bus station.
Leases have been concluded for businesses within the building.
Councilor Mellen added, “We are working with the National Express coach company and trentbarton to operate out of town services to downtown so that their staff have a good base there.
“The bus station is very modern and people will be able to wait in safety, with a cafe and another shop there.
“Everything is going well, we think it will be a great place for people to continue their journey.
“I’m not sure yet exactly who will be there, but these will likely be the types of hospitality businesses that will already be added to the many on Carrington Street.”
The central library is expected to open in late 2022 or early 2023.
