A typical car park of an era when these were considered worthy additions to city centres. By blocking off Bridge Street to (ordinary) cars the local government made access to this more difficult, and in particular the splendid Victoria Avenue had more traffic than it once did.

The car park was permanently closed 4 January 2022, to be re-developed with a new car park and an aparthotel.

The above ground part of the building was demolished January to March 2022 and the below ground part April to May 2022.
