Luton and Dunstable University Hospital
A new multi-storey patient and visitor car park has opened at the L&D on Lewsey Road.
The new four-level car park provides 278 patient and visitor car parking spaces and has been designed to improve the flow of cars, reducing queuing and congestion along Lewsey Road.
Staff and visitor cycling facilities are also available, including 40 cycling spaces for patients and over 200 for staff, as well as staff changing and shower amenities.
In addition to the patient and visitor car park, two new staff car parks have been created on Dunstable Road, providing a further 250 car parking spaces for staff.
The additional car parking spaces on both sites have certainly been welcomed by staff, patients, visitors and local residents.
