Hospital traffic flow affected by roadwork

Access to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital will be affected for one week so an elevated crosswalk can be placed in the area.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Public Works said the closure, which is scheduled from Thursday until September 1, will affect the hospital’s northwesterly entrance to its northeastern exit, both on Berry Hill Road.

Parking spaces on the road’s north side will be used to reroute pedestrians around the construction site, the spokesman added.

He explained: “Motorists wishing to utilise the northwestern hospital parking lot will only be able to gain access via Berry Hill Road via Point Finger Road.

“Motorists wishing to enter the southern parking lot near the hospital building can only use Berry Hill Road via Tee Street from the east.”

Drivers are advised to detour around the area via Tee Street, Point Finger Road and South Road during this time.

The ministry will manage the closure with barricades and signage. It apologised for any inconvenience that may result.

People with questions about the closure can contact Tina Beer-Searle, the ministry’s principal highway engineer, at 501-3044.
