City's Newest Parking Building To Open

Christchurch City Council's latest parking building, which will provide 207 spaces in Lichfield Street, will open on Monday 16 October.

The parking building is on top of the new $19 million Bus Xchange, which will connect with the new retail centre, The Crossing. This will provide a link direct to city-centre shops. Entry to the parking building and exiting will be from Lichfield Street. The two-level car park will be open about month before the Bus Xchange will open for business. It is designed for short-term parking. Height restrictions are greater than in other city parking buildings so, for instance, four-wheel drive vehicles will be able to use the building. The first working day at the Bus Xchange will be 20 November and it will be preceded by a week of special events.
