Shopping centre car park set for refurb
10:24am Friday 7th September 2012 in News
THE multi-storey car park at Grays Shopping Centre is set to undergo a complete refurbishment.
The work will include complete resurfacing, decoration, lighting and signage, as well as a series of road improvements for easier access.
Shopping centre manager Keith Evans, said: “This is great news for Grays shopping centre and this deal paves the way for significant investment in the multi storey car park that can only be good news for the town.
“The car park will be hugely improved making it a much safer and secure place to park in the heart of the town centre.
“With this initiative, our town centre location and favourable tariffs, we hope more people will choose to use this great facility.”
The refurbishment works come after Thurrock Council signed a five year lease to occupy more than 200 spaces on the top three levels of the car park for staff parking.
South Essex College is building its new multi-million pound campus on the council’s two outdoor car parks.
Mike Wimble, from Ellandi, which owns the shopping centre along with Rockspring PIM, said: “Grays will have a best in class parking facility, in keeping with our philosophy of bringing the best in shopping amenity to local communities.
“Following on from the solar installation, the new lighting will not only be brighter and safer, but also drastically reduce the scheme’s carbon footprint.”
The work is scheduled to begin soon.
