As part of The Christie travel strategy, the Trust has a number of initiatives in progress. Tiered car parking is one of these initiatives.
The tiered car parking scheme involves the erection of a new staff car park in the existing staff car parking area accessed via Cotton Lane. It will provide an additional 400 spaces at The Christie.
The project is due to start with the demolition of two accommodation blocks situated on the site at the end of summer 2019.
During the construction works, the existing car park will close and 266 staff parking spaces will be displaced from the hospital site. A car park working group has been established with the divisional leads to agree how the remaining onsite parking spaces should be allocated, based on service needs.
Patient car parking will not be affected by the tiered car parking project.
To alleviate the displacement of staff parking spaces, The Christie will be operating three park and ride sites in the local area which will be free of charge to staff members. At present, three park and ride sites have been agreed. These are located at Withington Community Hospital, Burnage Rugby Club and Hough End, all within a three-mile radius of the hospital.
Further information on the park and ride bus time tables will follow in due course.
