Cheshire East Council has offered an explanation for a visible "slope" in Crewe town centre's new multi-storey car park development.

Peveril Securities, Cordwell Property and Bowmer and Kirkland, are currently constructing phase one of Crewe's Royal Arcade development - with a new multi-storey car park starting to take shape.

Following a Crewe Nub News social media post of the multi-storey construction, a number of residents became concerned with noticeable bowing in the middle.

On Wednesday 24 May, Cheshire East Council confirmed the constructed decks have "purposely" been designed to slope towards the central spine - for "cost-efficient" drainage reasons.

A Cheshire East Council spokesperson told Nub News: "The decks of the multi-storey car park have purposely been designed to slope towards the central spine of the building. 

"This cost-efficient element of design controls the flow of run-off water from vehicles entering the car park and any rain which, under certain weather conditions, might be driven in through the building's external cladding - which will be applied later on during construction.

 "It allows the water to be collected in a series of rainwater gullies along the spine of the building, which is then taken down the building via downpipes and into a drainage system below the ground.

"We continue to make great progress with the construction of Crewe's new multi-storey car park and bus station.

Crewe's new bus interchange and multi-storey car park development is on track to be completed by the end of 2023 (Ryan Parker).

"We look forward to completion of phase one of the Royal Arcade scheme at the end of the year."
