Restricted access to Springfield University Hospital site via Burntwood Lane

Restricted access to Springfield University Hospital site via Burntwood Lane

With approval of the Estate Modernisation Programme Full Business case confirmed, building work on the new fit-for-purpose mental health facilities has begun in earnest. As part of the re-development, much of the infrastructure needs to be upgraded; in particular the roads need to be widened and services installed beneath them.

As a result, from 30 March 2020, there will be no vehicular access through the site or access to car parks from Burntwood Lane.  This is due to work starting  on the section of road between West Wing,  (Trust HQ, Building 15) and Building 32 (Recovery College, Canteen and Conference Centre). Therefore this section of road will be closed to vehicular traffic for approximately six months.

Pedestrian access will remain unchanged.

Vehicular access to Ronald Gibson House, Ghodse and High Trees will be via Burntwood Lane only.

All other buildings including Car Park B will only have vehicular access via the Glenburnie Road entrance.

We would encourage anyone attending for an appointment to use public transport where possible and to allow extra time if driving.

The bus stop will remain where it is allowing patients to attend appointments via public transport and pedestrian access will still be retained.

We appreciate that these changes can be frustrating and we apologise for the inconvenience but as we are sure you can appreciate these are essential infrastructure works that need to be completed to enable the new development.

If you have any concerns or questions, please talk to someone from the service in the first instance or email
