Car park closure on Sunday

Southampton road car park

Southampton Road Car Park

The Council has reported that the multi-storey car park in Mitchell Road/Southampton Road, Eastleigh will be closed on Sunday 20 February for essential refurbishment works.

The car park will be completely closed from midnight on Saturday 19th February until 2pm on Sunday 20th February 2011 but will not affect the Swan Centre car park.

The reason for the closure is to carry out a necessary upgrade of electrical equipment which will mean that it will not be possible to provide lighting or lifts during this period.

Eastleigh Council have borrowed £1 million to fund the works which will include the installation of an uprated CCTV system which will enable unelected council officials to secretly film and photograph car park users for their own safety.

The council recently announced Car park charges would be rising for the second time in 6 months .
