Royal Cornwall Hospital car park changes and roadworks February to April 2024

Posted on:

As we prepare our site for the new Women and Children’s Hospital, we can expect significant parking and access disruption, with limits on parking spaces. There are also likely to be delays getting in and out of the car parks, particularly at the start and end of the day.

Please see information below for a full breakdown of the works.
