Major changes:

  • Bus stop directly outside Royal Prince Alfred Hospital has been temporarily moved 100m south, towards St Andrew's College near the drive way of Gloucester House Drive. During this time, there is temporary loss of three doctor and three public parking spots.
      
  • Bus stop near Lucas Street (western side) has been temporarily moved outside Chris O'Brien Lifehouse.
      
  • Taxi zone at Missenden Road has been permanently moved to Salisbury Road (between Chris O’Brien Lifehouse and King George V buildings).
      
  • Temporary road closures of Campbell and Lucas streets will be required to complete these works. We will deliver notification letters to affected local businesses and residents before the closures. 
      

Staff, patients and visitors are encouraged to take care when travelling on Missenden Road, entering and leaving the hospital and crossing roads and to be aware of instructions from traffic controllers.
