A car park in the town centre will be closed temporarily while lines are painted on the floor.

Sanford Street car park has no markings on the floor and will be closed for the whole of Friday, April 19 while they are added.

Drivers currently park where there is space with no assigned bays. The pay and display machine is also not functioning, with the only option being to pay over the phone.

Swindon Advertiser: A poster warning of the car park closing temporarily

The car park on Sanford Street is not council-operated but privately managed by Britannia Parking. 

In nearby Marlborough, councillors have urged people not to panic after broken parking machines have created concerns about the future of going cashless.

The damaged machines meant many locals couldn't park as they were unable to pay using cash and struggled to use the MiPermit app.
