Visitors to Newark Hospital advised to allow plenty of time as one-way system on London Road means hospital access via Portland Street, Victoria Street and Boundary Road.

Patients, staff and visitors to Newark Hospital are being advised to allow more time for travel from Monday, due to the road works.

Severn Trent Water’s sewerage improvement works mean a diversion will be in place at the junction of London Road, Bowbridge Road and Sherwood Avenue.

A temporary mini-roundabout will be installed at the Sherwood Avenue/Baldertongate junction.

Bowbridge Road will be closed at the junction for the laying of new sewers.

Initially this closure will be at the London Road, junction but will move towards Sydney Terrace.

During these works a closure will also be put in place on Earp Avenue.

This is a safety measure as it is feared many vehicles will use the adjoining estate to by-pass the traffic restrictions, causing danger to residents and school children.

During this time the hospital can be accessed via Portland Street, Victoria Street and Boundary Road.

A one-way system will allow inbound traffic to continue on London Road whilst outbound traffic will be diverted onto Sherwood Avenue and Balderton Gate.

More information about the diversion route can be found on the project website at www.bnmnewark.com.
