CAR parks at Leighton Hospital are set to refurbished next week.

The Main Entrance car park, situated off the Smithy Lane entrance to the site, will be closed from Monday, July 28, to Monday, September 8, to allow for the improvement works to take place, including the creation of more disabled spaces, improved traffic flow and safer pedestrian access to and from the hospital buildings.

To accommodate the closure, estimated to last around six weeks, visitors will be redirected to the nearby staff car park located outside of the Maternity Unit.
