Simple solution for Royal Gwent Hospital parking

South Wales Argus: Royal Gwent Hospital Royal Gwent Hospital

REGARDING H. Williams’s letter (January 15) re a dedicated lane for the Royal Gwent car park.

There is a much simpler and cheaper solution easily available.

Remove the centre island from the pedestrian crossing outside the Gwent.

It is not used often enough to cause any problems if it were a single crossing.

Make the bus lane then a queuing lane for the car park. The bus lane could still have operational hours, say 0200hrs to 0201hrs.

This would avoid having to repay the Assembly and would make Cardiff Road flow. Problem solved.

The simple solution would be to close the car park at the RGH to all except disabled users and direct all traffic to Mendalgief road and the huge site whic could be used for parking.

At the moment the main entrance to the Royal Gwent car park is poorly located and congested and frequently full so the traffic backs up along the Cardiff road causing congestion. The current entrance needs to be closed or at least made one way so that say traffic only exits from there and can turn left only
