MOTORISTS are being offered a new pay-as-you-go card deal to park their cars in Portsmouth city centre.

The city council’s Park-It card will give users £220 of credit when they pay just £80 at Isambard Brunel multi-storey car park in Alec Rose Lane near Guildhall Square.

The council’s parking manager Michael Robinson said: ‘This is a great value scheme that offers safe, secure parking for Portsmouth residents. The Isambard Brunel multi-storey car park is in a prime location, central to many businesses and offices in the city centre.

‘It’s essential for anyone who is commuting on a regular basis and looking to save money on their parking costs. It’s ideal for anyone driving into the city, be this students coming in for lectures, staff working in the Civic Offices or Crown Court or people coming in to visit the shops.

‘It’s also great for anyone enjoying evening performances at the Guildhall or New Theatre Royal.’

The cards are available from the parking office in Alec Rose Lane. For more information, call (023) 9268 8310, or visit
