Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson opens new £6.5m Victoria Street car park

Liverpool city centre’s newest £6.5m multi-storey car park will be completely free to use in the days up until Christmas.

Victoria Street Car Park opens at 12 noon on Monday, December 18, and users will not be charged until Boxing Day on Tuesday, December 26.

Instead drivers can make a voluntary contribution to the Mayor’s Hope Fund which supports disadvantaged families including helping to fund food banks.

Following a £6.5m conversion from a ground level operation to a four floor multistorey, the new car park provides 333 car spaces including 15 motorcycle spaces and 28 cycle spaces.

To operate 24/7 365 days a year, the new car park will also provide three electric vehicle charging bays.

Adjoining the car park is a three storey retail and leisure build, complete with a rooftop terrace, which has capacity for outdoor seating on a widened pavement area. These units are currently being marketed to let.

The scheme, funded by Liverpool City Council, has been designed to reduce congestion and pollution caused by the former 121-space outdoor car park which did not publicise spaces and caused motorists to circle the site waiting for an available spot.

Clad in coursed stone with large glazed openings, the new car park will also lead to a new tree planting programme around the Victoria Street area.

Mayor Joe Anderson, who drove the first electric car into the new car park, said: “Victoria Street plays a vital role in our city centre for shoppers, diners and visitors and this high quality car park will provide a huge boost for surrounding businesses such as the Metquarter and for guests staying at numerous nearby hotels. 

Built by contractors Willmott Dixon, Victoria Street car park can be accessed from Crosshall Street with the exit on Sir Thomas Street.
