To be aware whilst these works are taking place –
Today, Thursday 21 September, a large crane arrive has arrived on site, with extremely large wagons coming to site Friday to Sunday manoeuvring and negotiating the internal road network to where the units will be placed in front of the Fred and Ann Rehabilitation building.
Due to the size of the wagons and complexities of taking delivery of the units, for this phase of the project it is necessary to restrict pedestrian and traffic activity along the inner road from 7am on
Friday morning through to 5pm on Sunday.
Extra personnel will be available advising colleagues, patients, and the public of the restrictions in place informing that access to the main building will be via OPD2 or the main entrance at Gate 3. Please note that the restrictions in place will be lifted by the contractors when it is safe to do so.
To allow for the large wagons to manoeuvre safely as they turn onto the inner road the disabled spaces in front of OPD 3 (OMFS/Podiatric Surgery building) will not be available.

- Patients attending RDU between 7am and 8am will be informed to enter the main building via the double doors on the Comforts Fund corridor. Thereafter, the main entrance at MIU will be accessible.
