Welwyn Hatfield Council is set to splash £200k on refurbishment work at one of its WGC car parks.
Campus West will be fully resurfaced, have its drainage improved, and get additional disabled spaces, along with new lighting, a clearer entrance and remarked pedestrian routes.
The revamp will mostly take place over three days – starting on Monday, March 5 – although some work to cut back the conifers around the edge of the car park will begin next week (Monday, February 5).
A council spokeswoman said the car park will be closed during the three days, but arrangements have been made to ensure Campus East Upper will be available from 6pm onwards.
The work follows a £1.7million investment in Campus West in 2014, which added two new cinema screens and a soft play area to the complex.
Councillor Helen Bromley, executive member for environment, said: “We will be starting to trim the conifers next week in preparation for the three days of major works in early March.
“Many of these trees are encroaching parking spaces and although the appearance of the cut back trees may look stark at first, they will grow back and improve in appearance fairly quickly.”
