Drivers turned away from Fremlin Walk car park in Maidstone

14 February 2014
by Kent Messenger reporter

Delays were caused in Maidstone town centre this afternoon by drivers turned away from a car park. 

Tailbacks have formed in Fairmeadow, near to Fremlin Walk shopping centre, and on the bridge system. 

The centre said it closed the top floor of its three-storey car park on advice from Kent Highways to help ease congestion. 

All floors are now open. 

The site has been charging people a £2 flat rate on weekdays and £3 on weekends after recent flooding damaged its barriers. 

There were concerns the lower rate would attract commuters.
