The site road in front of the emergency department at James Cook will be partially closed on Wednesday 18 October from 7am to 4pm.
Update – Road now reopen!
We are pleased to report that testing is now complete and the site road is now reopen. Thank you for your patience and apologies for any inconvenience caused.
This is to allow essential tests to be carried out in preparation for the new urgent treatment centre modules which are scheduled to be installed in late November.
At the main entrance to James Cook, no vehicles except ambulances and police will be able to pass the emergency department (going from the main Marton Road entrance in the direction of car park V3 / the North Entrance).
Coming from the direction of car park V3, vehicles will be able to go as far as, but no further than, the emergency department patient drop off. This area will be strictly for emergency department patient drop off only.
If drivers come onto site via the main entrance they will need to go around the perimeter road (security can exercise discretion in extreme circumstances such as a life-threatening emergency).
There will be a designated route for pedestrians and there will be staff on site to assist with directing people as required.
