Improved access at Q-Park Oxford Street London
Tuesday, 9 June 2015
Q-Park UK has completed the final phase of the refurbishment at Q-Park Oxford Street London. This included the installation of a new glass lift improving customer access to the parking facility directly from Cavendish Square.
After taking over the car park in 2011, Q-Park inherited a number of challenges with the Oxford Street car park such as crime and homelessness. However, the main issue was for customers with mobility issues as there was no wheelchair access, also making access difficult for customers with young children and those using buggys. After 4 years of planning Q-Park has now finally completed the development and celebrated the occasion with a launch party.
Q-Park was joined by guests from the parking world, customers and key members of Westminster Council and DMUK.
DMUK Director of Policy and Campaigns, Helen Dolphin awarded Q-Park the Disabled Parking Award and commented “For many years the Oxford Street car park was inaccessible for disabled motorists. We’re delighted that Q-Park has managed to install the lift so that the parking facility is accessible to all. We have no doubt that being able to park in one of the best shopping areas in the UK will be good for both disabled motorists and retailers in the area.”
The unique glass lift provides access from Cavendish Square Park down to the underground car park's three sub levels.
Quality and safety are paramount to Q-Park − customers can therefore only enter with a valid parking ticket.
