New car park barriers and CCTV cameras have been installed at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley, Scotland, in order to streamline vehicle access to the facility’s car park, a news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
It is hoped the move will prevent drivers who have no business using the main car park – which is for patients and visitors only – blocking spots.
There have been problems over the years with members of the public using the car park when they have no genuine reason for being on the grounds. The new system is likely to help hospital bosses identify legitimate motorists from those abusing the system.
Councillor Kenny MacLaren, whose Paisley North West ward takes in the RAH, says this is a great move, which he wishes had been introduced sooner.
He said: “I’m pleased that the health board has decided to take action to control access to the patients car park.
“It is important that patients and their families get access to spaces when they need them most. I hope this new barrier system will allow better control and better access to much-needed spaces.
