VINCI Park creating 1,000-space car park at Gloucestershire Royal

Work begins this month on a 9m multi-storey car at the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in Gloucester.
Car park operator VINCI Park is designing and building the 1,000-space car park (PR Feb).

The car park is one of two being built by VINCI park for the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The Gloucestershire Royal?Hospital car park will feature a fa├žade which makes use of vertical wooden elements. VINCI Park took over the management of the existing car parks at both hospitals in January in a contract lasting for the next 30 years.

VINCI is also planning to build a new 400-space multi-storey car  park at Cheltenham General Hospital. The trust and VINCI Park plan to use timber cladding on the 6m car park.

A trust spokeswoman said: Demand is high for car park provision and it was decided that the only way forward was to seek an experienced private sector firm, which could fund the capital cost of the improved car parking provision as well as run our car parks fairly and effectively, she noted. Parking charges for members of the public will remain unchanged.

The Gloucestershire Royal car park will have a pay-on-foot system which will accept cash payments from the public. The system will recognise smart cards to staff who have permits. To alleviate pressure on its  car parks, the trust subsidises alternative travel such as a free park & ride and free and subsidised bus services.
