Due to unsuitable weather conditions, the work on the main car park that was due to take place on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th November will now be completed this weekend- Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th December 2022. Please see further information and the amended dates below..
With Welsh Government approval of the new proposed Satellite Radiotherapy Unit expected by the end of this year, this sees the start of a very exciting time for Nevill Hall Hospital and for Aneurin Bevan University Health Board.
Following approval, the new £45 million Centre of Excellence for Cancer will be located on the site of Nevill Hall Hospital’s former Ante-Natal Unit, with completion expected within approximately two years.
As is to be expected, there are some preparatory works required before construction commences, which will mean some essential temporary changes to the provision of car parking and the management of traffic through the Nevill Hall site.
The key proposed changes will be undertaken in two phases;
Work to create additional car parking spaces in the hospital’s main carpark will take place over the weekend of the 3rd & 4th December, as outlined below, meaning that some car parking spaces will be temporarily unavailable whilst this work is ongoing over the weekend.
The construction site set up will use approximately half of the existing Post-Graduate Centre car park, as well as some parking spaces immediately adjacent to the former Ante-Natal clinic. To compensate for these lost spaces, additional parking will be created through the above-mentioned reconfiguration of the main car park, and with the addition of a new 75 space car park.
In order to accommodate the large construction vehicles, the traffic flow through the site will become a one-way system, with all vehicles (including buses) having to enter via the main entrance from Brecon Road. The current access via Union Road will not be available- this will become exit only. This will also mean that it may not be possible to park your vehicle at the roadside within the hospital site whilst work is ongoing.
We would be extremely grateful if, during this time, our patients and visitors could consider alternative ways of arriving at the hospital, such as travelling by bus, being dropped off by a loved one, or lift-sharing. We would also ask that patients leave plenty of time to arrive at their appointment in case of traffic delays through the site.
We apologise for the inconvenience these unavoidable works will cause for our staff, patients and visitors, but this temporary disruption will result in a fantastic new facility to serve the population of Gwent.
