Planned roadworks will soon get underway at Arrowe Park Hospital to help improve the flow of traffic outside its Emergency Department.
Although the widening works will not affect emergency ambulances entering or exiting the site, there will be changes to how some visitors leave the hospital from the free carpark and how some staff exit the large employee carpark.
For safety, a one way system will be temporarily introduced taking visitor vehicles from the free car park and staff vehicles from the employee carpark around the back of the hospital to the sites alternative exit on Arrowe Park Road.
The improvement work is expected to start at 9am on Monday, 5th June and is scheduled to last three weeks. Please see the map attached.
Bob Jones, Estates Project Lead at Wirral University Teaching Hospital, said: “This work is required so we can improve traffic flow in front of our Emergency Department.
“The aim is to cause minimal disruption to visitors and patients. However we do apologise as there may be some slight congestion as vehicles travel along the one-way system at the back of the hospital. For the comfort of patients using Patient Transport Services, speed bumps have been removed from the rear of the building however the speed limit of 15 miles per hour remains in place.
“We would like to thank the public for their patience while we carry out this work which will provide long term benefits to visitors, patients and staff.”
