THE city parking squeeze will get even tighter on Monday, as light rail work gobbles up one of Newcastle's last all-day free car parks.
About 40 spaces will vanish with the closure of the Steel Lane car park, behind New Hunter England Health, in Newcastle West.
The demise of the untimed, free car park comes with the construction of the light rail line in the former heavy rail corridor.
Work in that section of the corridor has steadily increased in the past two months.
The closure of Steel Lane, which was mainly used by office workers during the working week, compounds parking woes in the area, with at least 800 spaces slated for closure in Honeysuckle due to new development.
Some reprieve is expected when former bus zones on Hunter Street are converted to two-hour parking.
Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes also promised a “parking improvement plan”, which included partnerships with landholders in the West End, during the election.
