Parking for Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit staff from the Prince of Wales Hospital and the Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick, will be a little easier thanks to new parking measures being implemented by Randwick City Council this week.
Hospital staff from these departments can apply for a Special Temporary Parking Permit that will allow access to temporary Special Permit Parking Zones and to some of the Resident Parking Zones near to the hospitals.
The new Special Permit zones will be located on streets in close vicinity to the hospitals and will provide almost 80 special parking spaces. Hospital workers will also have access to over 200 parking spaces within residential parking areas close to the hospital as well.
“It was really important for us to find immediate, practical ways to support our frontline healthcare workers during the pandemic, in order to make their lives a little bit easier,” explained Randwick Mayor Danny Said. “The work they’re doing is demanding, intense and incredibly essential. This is just one way that we’re able to let them know how much we appreciate what they’re doing for our community as a whole.”
The new parking signs indicating where Special Permit Holders may park will be installed over the weekend of 4 – 5 April, 2020.
