Lancashire County Council is spending millions of pounds to secure the crumbling concrete of the grade-II listed building.

Levels six and seven have been revamped and reopen to drivers on Tuesday 18 April.

On the same day the third level of the Bus Station shuts for renovation along with the car park ramps at the Guild Hall end.

Renovation work on the car park includes new wider parking spaces, new lighting, surfaces, payment machines and security cameras.

Project manager Andrew Barrow said: “We’re pleased that we’ll have another two levels open again for people to use. This work is making the car park levels more welcoming and will encourage more people to use them.

“We ask people to bear with us while this essential work is carried out. It is a major challenge to keep the building open during this work, and we’re doing everything we can to keep the disruption to a minimum and complete the work on schedule.”
