The hospital has our and community support. But David King and colleagues’ have made clear they need to be better neighbours, to take account of Mile End needs as they modernise the hospital, manage traffic flows and reduce the pressure on local roads. Improvements are coming.
A new travel centre will help everyone. But we know fewer staff parking permits are a problem and can affect residents, as staff unable to park will look for spaces on local roads. We welcome steps taken to reduce that pressure, such as free use of the park and ride for three months and subsidies for car sharing and public transport use.
We will continue to monitor and press for further improvements through our liaison meetings. SHARE YOUR CONCERNS with us and we will continue to make sure your voice is heard.
