New Addenbrooke’s multi-storey car park opens
17 April 2008
The new multi-storey car park at Addenbrooke’s opens on Friday 18 April, with 770 spaces for patients and visitors.
“This will be the hospital’s main public car park,” says Richard Howe, Director of Estates and Facilities. “The facilities are excellent, and it will provide enough additional parking spaces for the future. We want to encourage people who can get here without driving to do so — but we still need to provide parking for disabled patients, the ill, the frail, and those without convenient access to public transport.”
The new car park is seven storeys high, with 63 disabled parking spaces, security lighting, and more than 50 CCTV cameras. It will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with a customer service desk to provide information and concession tickets for outpatients with appointments. The building is fitted with a wind turbine and solar cells to contribute to its energy needs — and a new pedestrian footbridge connects it to the hospital's main entrance.
The entrance route to this new car park is via the Adrian Way entrance off Long Road
Other changes to parking onsite
As well as the opening of the 'Main Hospital Car Park' a number of other changes to parking will occur on the hospital site over the next couple of months.
Car Park F
From 18 April until 26 May 2008 refurbishment work will be taking place in car park F (opposite the Addenbrooke's Treatment Centre). Parts of the car park will remain open during this and marshals will be located at the entrance to the car park to direct you to available parking spaces. If possible please use the new 'Main Hospital Car Park'. Once this refurbishment work has been completed Car Park F will be renamed as the 'Treatment Centre Car Park'.
Closure of Car Park H (outpatients car park)
On the 25 April Car Park H, the main car park for outpatient parking, will close. If you have an outpatients appointment after this date please park in the Main Hospital Car Park (new multi-storey car park).
