The full redevelopment of intu Milton Keynes’ multi-storey car park remains ‘on schedule for completion’, the centre’s general manager has confirmed, following the opening of its top floor.
The phased car park improvements have seen half of level teo and the entire level three (top floor) completed with work now in progress to finish level two.
The £2.8m project was put in place to create a much better overall experience, from the moment shoppers arrive to the time they leave.
Works include laying a completely new floor, better marked spaces, easier to follow wayfinding for cars and pedestrians, clearly marked walkways around the car park, a brighter look and feel – and, soon to be added, more electric vehicle bays – an extra 12 in total.
Throughout the substantial works, intu Milton Keynes has ensured the majority of the car park has remained open for the public to use as normal.
Now, due to be completed during November, in time for the excitement of Christmas, intu Milton Keynes’ new look car park will boast 738 spaces, incorporating accessible spaces, plenty of parent and toddler spaces, a car wash valet area, and nine Tesla spaces.
Nick Coppock, operations manager at intu Milton Keynes said: “We are delighted with the look of the completed sections of the car park and the difference it is making to our shopper experience already. The spaces are particularly wide, even the standard ones, and we have excellent parent and toddler spaces, which we know from our unique insight is important for people deciding where to park in the city centre.”
intu Milton Keynes’ car parking costs £2.50 for two hours parking.
Nick added: “The patience of our customers has been fantastic, and I would like to thank them wholeheartedly for their support and kind words. There are more exciting surprises to come which we will announce soon.”
