As part of The Christie travel strategy, the Trust has a number of initiatives in progress. Tiered car parking is one of these initiatives.
The tiered car parking scheme involves the erection of a new staff car park in the existing staff car parking area accessed via Cotton Lane. It will provide an additional 400 spaces at The Christie.
The project is due to start with the demolition of two accommodation blocks situated on the site at the end of September 2019.
During the construction works, the existing car park will close and 266 staff parking spaces will be displaced from the hospital site.
Once the main staff car park closes, to alleviate the displacement of staff parking spaces, The Christie will be operating a number of park and ride sites in the local area which will be free of charge to staff members. Further information on the park and ride services will follow in due course.
Patient car parking will not be affected by the tiered car parking project.
From the 17th of June enabling works will commence to divert services from B and C accommodation blocks situated on the cotton lane car park site which are due to be demolished to make way for the Tiered Car Park. A small compound will be situated at the back of the car park adjacent to C block. You can expect to see areas of the grass crete and the vacated student blocks fenced off for service trench excavation works until the end of August.
