Temporary overnight closure: Britannia Car Park

The car park will be open as usual during the day, between 7am and 8pm.

Date issued: 14 November 2018

Colchester Borough Council’s Britannia Car Park will be closed overnight from 8pm - 7am on 19, 20, 21 and 22 November to enable Essex Highways to complete essential resurfacing work on Queen Street. The car park will be open as usual during the day, between 7am and 8pm.

Visitors and workers in Colchester can still take advantage of the great value parking available at our other award-winning car parks nearby, which can all be accessed off the main town roads.

The nearby Priory Street and Vineyard Street car parks offer overnight parking. Alternatively, park in St Mary’s Car Park, at the heart of the town centre, for just £2 after 6pm.

Cllr Mike Lilley, Portfolio Holder for Planning, Public Safety and Licensing, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this closure, but Essex Highways need to complete these works to nearby Queen Street. Many of our great value town centre car parks offer overnight parking, so I'm sure that residents and visitors will find a car park to suit their needs.”
