The NCP car park above The Pallasades shopping centre is to close next month for demolition and rebuilding as part of the Birmingham New Street and Pallasades redevelopment.

The car park, which dates from the 1970s, will be demolished and in its place a modern secure facility built to complement the redeveloped Pallasades centre and John Lewis department store, which open in Autumn 2014.

The car park will remain open until its closure at 7pm on Friday 18 May with the new car park set to open in 2014.

Chris Montgomery, project director for Network Rail explained: "The redevelopment of Birmingham New Street will not only transform the station but deliver a modern, upgraded Pallasades centre and new John Lewis department store which will help transform the city centre and create new jobs.

"We apologise for any inconvenience the closure will cause but the existing car park has seen better days so demolishing it and starting again is the only viable alternative to allow us to deliver an improved, modern facility for the city."

There are numerous alternative parking facilities in the city centre within a five minute walk of New Street station (details below).

Jonathan Cheetham, general manager of the Pallasades added: "We are sure that people will understand that this is a necessary requirement in the development of The Pallasades as part of the overall Birmingham New Street project. The outcome will be a modern and safe car park with all the facilities to be expected, which will reflect the look and feel of the new shopping centre. We very much hope that people will bear with us while the work is ongoing, and that they will continue to visit our busy centre from other car parks close by."

Notes to editors:

The Gateway project is funded by Network Rail, Birmingham City Council, Department for Transport, Advantage West Midlands and Centro. An integrated project team is managing delivery. This comprises Network Rail and its delivery partner, Mace, along with Atkins and architects AZPA.

The redevelopment of Birmingham New Street station will double passenger capacity, improve access and provide better connectivity across the city. The project will deliver:

- a concourse that is three and a half times bigger than the existing station, enclosed by a giant light filled atrium

- more accessible, brighter and clearer platforms, serviced by over 30 new escalators and 15 new public lifts

- a stunning new station façade providing cutting edge architecture in the heart of the city

- a new look Pallasades and John Lewis which will deliver a new retail destination in the heart of Birmingham, create new jobs and provide the stimulus for the regeneration of the south side and areas around the station

The first phase of the project will complete in the next year when a new station concourse opens to passengers. The new look Pallasades and John Lewis will open in 2014 with the project fully completing in 2015.
