The new operating arrangement of Chapel Street car park will bring increased footfall into the vicinity of the west end during the working week with the car park usage figures projected to significantly increase from current figures.

Aberdeen City Council city growth and resources convener Councillor Ryan Houghton said: “It is good to see that work on the upgrades for Chapel Street car park are to start soon and I’m sure people using the facility will appreciate the work when it is finished.”

The car park is to close from Sunday 24 April 2022 until October 2022 to allow work for the upgrades for the West End facility. Upon reopening for public use, spaces will be allocated to Shell employees as part of their arrival into new city centre offices at the Silver Fin building.

Simon Roddy, senior vice president, U.K. Upstream for Shell U.K. Ltd, said: “We are eager to play our part in the regeneration of Aberdeen city centre as it builds back from the pandemic.

“The move to the Silver Fin building is a signal of our continued commitment to the city and the region and the start of the refurbishment works is an example of the positive impact we hope our relocation to the city centre can make.”
