Road closure – Starting Monday 5 February, 2018

Milton Keynes University Hospital are currently building a new multi-storey car park in the north of the hospital site. The next stage of work is to bring steel materials onto site. In order to do this safely and securely, the hospital will temporarily be closing all staff and visitor access to a section of the ring road to allow a crane to manage the deliveries of these materials.

The ring road that will be partially closed is the road that runs around the north of the hospital site, close to where the multi-storey and cancer centre development projects are ongoing. The area that will be closed is highlighted below.

The closure of the road will begin from Monday 5 February for a maximum of seven weeks. During this period, there will be no access to the road from the turning that leads to car park B to the exit road from Marlborough House. Advanced warning signage will be in place from the week commencing 29th January to notify users of the site and the hospital’s security team will be on hand during the first few days of the closure to provide support and manage the flow of vehicles.

Car parking access

There will be no change in access to any of the car parks across the site and you will be able to enter and exit all car parks as normal.

Please note that if you are parking in our current multi-storey car park you will not be able to turn left out of the car park to leave the site as the ring road will be closed. Please exit by turning right and leaving via Standing Way (H8) or by driving pass the back of the site to leave via Marlborough Street (V8). No through road signs will be in place to notify users.

Background on north site development works

The Trust is currently developing the north part of the hospital site, close to the cardiology department, to improve facilities and infrastructure.

In this location, a number of developments will be made to enhance and increase the services that we offer at the hospital. The project is scheduled to be completed in winter 2019 when we will be able to access the new Cancer Centre which will significantly improve the cancer services available at the Trust. All developments will be made to facilitate the construction of the Cancer Therapy Centre and further clinical spaces in the future.

The development is being constructed in four phases to ensure that staff, patient and visitor safety is maintained throughout the duration of the project. This method will also be adopted to manage car parking levels across the site.

The improvements included as part of this project are:

  • New multi-storey car park (MSCP) – commencing Oct 2017 (to be completed April 2018)
  • Cancer Centre – commencing April 2018 (to be completed winter 2019)
  • Development of area for Radiotherapy Centre or other clinical development
