Helping to access healthcare

Working with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, SPT has given £12,000 from the Access to Healthcare funding to improve bus and pedestrian access in and around the Vale of Leven Hospital.

The project has included upgrading and extending the bus markings to prevent cars from parking in the area; upgrading pedestrian crossings and footpath repairs; introducing double yellow lining and keep clear markings to assist with traffic management.

The improvements have been introduced to help the movement and flow of buses around the hospital site, while helping to control inappropriate car parking.  They also provide good quality pedestrian crossings and a footpath for staff, visitors and patients.

Site estates manager at the Vale of Leven Hospital, John Menzies said:

“The work undertaken with SPT with the funding provided by Access to Healthcare has helped to improve the route for buses around the hospital making it more convenient for patients and visitors to get here.  Once here, the improved pedestrian crossings and footpaths make it easier for everyone visiting the hospital to get around the site.”
