Katy Gallagher has announced that with the new hospital building works taking up large chunks of car park, she’s got a cunning plan:
Following that consultation process, new temporary parking measures are set to come into effect from Saturday 10 July, when the large surface level car park on the southern end of the hospital campus closes and the main pubic parking is relocated to the Yamba Drive South car park.
“The Yamba Drive car park is flat, well lit and within easy walking distance of the hospital’s main buildings,” Ms Gallagher said.
“However, to further assist patients and visitors a new shuttle bus service has been established which will transport patients and visitors between the car park and the main hospital buildings. To ensure the safety and security of staff who will be required to park further away from the hospital, the shuttle service will also assist staff to their vehicles during the early hours of the morning and after dark.
Any other parts of town we’d like to see shuttle buses?
