The Peterborough Clinic Parking Reconstruction
March 2nd, 2020
The Peterborough Clinic announced today, March 2, 2020, that it has engaged Dufferin Construction, a Division of CRH Canada Group Inc. and D.M. Wills Associates Limited to reconstruct and combine the parking lots at 26 Hospital Drive and 10 Hospital Drive.
The purpose of the parking lot reconstruction will be to alleviate traffic congestion on Hospital Drive during the hours when The Peterborough Clinic is open. The improved public parking lot layout and equipment is expected to simplify parking logistics for all customers. There will be a new exit lane at Weller Street to reduce traffic near the PRHC emergency department and a free patient drop-off / pick-up circle at the front entrance of The Peterborough Clinic. The project is expected to commence in March, 2020 with three construction phases to be completed by August, 2020.
Dr. David Newport, Chairperson of The Peterborough Clinic partnership stated “The completed parking lot will offer improved access to medical services in the area for all patients and caregivers. It is our hope that users will find reduced anxiety in a safe and aesthetically improved space. We recognize there will be a temporary increase in parking congestion during the construction phases and we ask for everyone’s patience as we make this exciting improvement to our property.”
