Call for public to get on the buses

People visiting the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital are being urged to consider using bus services as car park repairs mean the temporary loss of 41 hospital parking spaces.

Contractors are working in the hospital's car park H to remedy a drainage problem and in order to get the work done a total of 41 spaces are unavailable until January 31.

Patients and visitors are being asked to consider using the hospital Park and Ride service at Costessey (a 12 minute journey on the Konect 9 service) or other local bus services to the hospital.

The hospital has a total of 854 public car park spaces (90 of which are disabled spaces) but pressure on car parking is very heavy at peak times.

People are also being reminded that the first half-hour of all public car parking at NNUH is free so that patients can be dropped off by relatives and collected later at absolutely no cost.
