University Hospitals Bristol (UHB) NHS Trust proposes to build a new Hospital Transport hub.
They want to improve access to their hospitals with a new patient car park, staff cycle facilities and public transport services up-and-running by summer 2021. The hub would contain 820 car park spaces, a net 628 space increase on today, of which 34 would be disabled bays, a net 27 space increase on today. They would provide 400 cycle spaces for staff helping to free up some of the public cycle parking spaces that staff currently use. The hub would link to the existing free hospital shuttle bus and will also work with local bus operators to improve public transport links to the hub.
UHB NHS Trust would like to hear your views about their proposal before they submit a planning application to Bristol City Council. There is much more information on their website where an online survey form is also available. UHB NHS Trust are also holding a drop-in session where people can ask us questions about the plans. This will be held from 4.30-8.30pm on Thursday 19 July in the Level 9 Restaurant at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, BS2 8HW.
