Moray Council has invited tenders to carry out the work which has an estimated cost of £250,000.

The asphalt surfaces on both levels 2 and 4 of the car park were replaced with a waterproofing system just three years ago in 2021.

However, problems have since risen due to, as the tender states, “poor surface preparation and installation”.

Work has already been carried out on level 2. This saw the 210-space car park close last October for five weeks.

In terms of the work still required, the tender states: “This project will require the surfacing of level 4, including the ramps and mezzanine floor leading up to it, to be replaced.

“The surface water drainage and expansion joints will also require renewal.”

Moray Council has set a deadline of April 26 for offers to carry out the work.
