Patients urged to 'park and ride' for Llandough Hospital

August 14, 2019 at 4:47 PM

Constituents with hospital appointments at Llandough Hospital should be aware that one of the main multi-storey car parks will be closed for a week from 19th August 2019 as part of ongoing development work on the site.

  • The advice is to travel there using a new FREE Park and Ride scheme if possible. 
  • Park at Toys R Us on Olympian Drive. 
  • Buses run every 20 minutes on weekdays.
  • The journey takes 10 minutes by bus

In a letter to make patients with appointments aware of the situation, the hospital says, "Cardiff and Vale University Health Board apologises for any inconvenience this may cause, and we are encouraging patients, visitors and staff to use the new Park and Ride service to the University Hospital Llandough which runs on weekdays, every 20 minutes from the Toys r Us car park. This is located on Olympian Drive, CF11 0JS and drops off/picks up at the Plaza at UHL. The journey on the bus only takes 10 minutes.

"The new Park and Ride service has been funded by Cardiff & Vale Health Charity and is free of charge for patients, visitors and staff to use. We have already received very positive feedback and we hope that this will encourage more people to use the service."
