A PATIENT APPROACH TO PARKING MANAGEMENT

Addenbrooke's hospital in Cambridge is the largest generator of traffic in Cambridgeshire. The hospital is undergoing a major redevelopment phase, which will increase parking demand and reduce parking capacity. The Access to Addenbrooke's travel plan was initiated in 1997 to reduce the number of people who drive to the hospital. Each year in October, a detailed modal study is conducted to determine what form of transport people use and the occupancy levels of cars entering the site. Staff IS cards are programmed to allow entry into one car park and credit can be loaded onto the cards at machines around the site. Staff who live within 2 miles of the hospital are not allowed to park on site before 3.30 pm. Car poolers and staff with special needs are given priority. All car parks are safeguarded by barriers, CCTV surveillance and security patrols. Park-and-ride sites serve the hospital. Cycle parking provision is ample at the hospital.
