Royal Cornwall Hospital car park changes and roadworks

Posted on:

From May 2024

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.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during these works. If you have any questions, please email:
