Reading Car Park & Courtenay Central and Tory Street cordon

Information about the Reading Car Park, and the Courtenay Central and Tory Street cordon.

Road cordons

Courtenay Central and Tory Street building and car park were evacuated following November's earthquake. Some cordons were in place on Tory Street between Wakefield Street and Courtenay Place for public safety while clearing of the demolished building site was finished. There is a small cordon in place while work is done on the pavement.
