Moorgate Road Closures – allow extra travelling time to get to the hospital

10 Jul 2014 10:09:28


Council and hospital bosses are asking those travelling to Rotherham Hospital to allow more time for their journey during resurfacing work to Moorgate Road.
Diversions will be in place from 21 July, taking drivers and those using public transport on a slightly extended route to get to the hospital, part of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust.
John Cartwright, Director of Estates & Facilities at the Trust, said: “We’re asking those coming to hospital for appointments, to visit loved ones or travelling here for work, to allow extra time so that appointments aren’t missed and to ensure the Trust continues to deliver high quality services.
“Alongside the council, we have worked closely with local travel providers and residents to ensure the work causes as little disruption as possible. Long-term, we are pleased the work will lead to improved road conditions for our patients, visitors and staff.”
Buses will continue to run regularly in the area and bus stops on Baker Street, adjacent to Moorgate Road and near to the hospital main entrance, will still be in use. Ambulances and other emergency vehicles will continue to have full, quick and safe access in and out of Rotherham Hospital.
Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council has allowed a two week period for the work however it is anticipated it will take just 3 to 5 days to complete before the road is fully reopened.
Those with queries around public transport during this period are advised to check with their local travel provider.
