WORK to improve the Monklands Hospital car park will begin in the first week in October.
This work will create disabled parking bays outside the front entrance as well as better drop off areas with more space for ambulances.
Rhona Roberton, general manager of Monklands Hospital said: “The new car park will significantly improve parking for patients, visitors and staff at Monklands Hospital.
“We have already recently increased car parking spaces on site and the closure of Airdrie Health Centre has also freed up more public spaces.
“However, further work is required to ensure we have safe drop-off areas for patients and appropriate disabled parking bays near the front entrance of the hospital.
“There may be some impact on availability of spaces while the work is going on. The work will take place in phases to ensure there is minimum disruption however anyone travelling to the hospital should be aware there may be times when parking spaces are limited.
“We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause”.
People will still be able to use the drop-off area outside the main entrance while the work is carried out.
Improvements to lighting in the main car park and to the path between the David Matthews Centre and the hospital will also be made during this time.
The car park is due to fully re-open in April.
