New multi storey for Castle Car Park
New multi storey for Castle Car Park

Category : Press Release

In February 2013, work will begin on a new multi storey car park at Castle Street Car Park, with work due to be completed in June 2013.

From the end of January until the works are complete, the lower half of Castle Street car park (the area closest to the Law Courts) will be closed, with access to the top half of the car park from Castle Yard (entrance closest to the Old Town Hall).  This temporary reduction in spaces will make parking difficult in the area and it is advised that people use the car park situated in front of Merthyr College. (Full details of all car parks in Merthyr Tydfil can be viewed by selecting the following link: Car Parks)

The new multi storey car park situated in the lower half of Castle Street Car Park will accommodate 180 new parking spaces, including disabled bays and parent and toddler parking.  It will also have CCTV, card payments and an open stairwell; making it easier and safer to park in Merthyr Tydfil.

Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council will be responsible for managing the programme of works and minimising disruptions to residents and businesses.
