Work starts on clearing Southmead Hospital site for next phase of construction

Wednesday, 23 July 2014

Work has started on the Southmead Hospital Bristol site to make way for the next phase of construction.

The old hospital buildings which were vacated during the move into the new hospital need to be cleared to make way for a multi-storey car park for patients and visitors to be built alongside the Brunel building, which opened in May.

Work has started this week with the dismantling of the temporary pharmacy building which was put up on the Southmead Hospital site ahead of construction of the Brunel building.

 
A pedestrian entrance to Southmead Hospital which was set to be closed from Monday is now due to be closed from August 4 to make way for further dismantling and demolition work.

The entrance and footpath to the site by the junction of Kingsholm Road and Kendon Drive is set to be closed from Monday, August 4 so work can start on dismantling the temporary Kendon restaurant building that was installed on the site ahead of construction of the Brunel building.

It would not be safe for pedestrians and cyclists to use the entrance works at the junction of Kingsholm Road and Kendon Drive while these works are ongoing.
