NEW signage to appear at Orange Health Service will encourage visitors and staff to make use of under-utilised car parks across the campus.
Since the new site opened on Forest Road in March 2011 the health service has been plagued by complaints about the lack of available parking spaces for visitors and staff.
While the health service is yet to announce when the new signs will appear, a spokesperson said they were expected to enable better use of available parking areas.
Signs will encourage motorists to use the Sun Lodge car park, near the southern entrance of Bloomfield Hospital, and an overflow area at the rear of the Orange hospital.
The health service spokesperson said erecting the new signage was not in response to complaints about the parking situation.
“The Orange Health Service and project management company have agreed on a new signage strategy for the hospital,” the spokesperson said.
“The Orange Health Service has agreed on additional signage to assist with directing traffic flow to our under-utilised car parks and parking overflow area, which have approximately 250 car parking spaces.
“We are currently waiting on a timeline for the installation of the new signs.”
