Woodhouse Lane car park in Leeds refurbished

Work has started to give a car park in central Leeds a new lease of life.

Woodhouse Lane multi-storey car park will undergo repairs as it prepares to serve events at the Leeds Arena when it opens in 2013.

As part of the improvements a new stair and lift tower will be built, as well as a pedestrian footbridge.

Leeds City Council said the repairs were essential. It said at least 65% of the 1,287 spaces would remain open during the work.

Lighting and CCTV surveillance at the car park will also be upgraded.
