Construction is set to get underway on a new, state-of-the-art £12.5 million Endoscopy Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital next week, as part of plans to modernise its estate.
Fifty six modules will be craned into position next to the existing Day Surgery Unit from
7 February to 13 February. The modular design helps to minimise the impact of construction on the site, such as noise, dust, and light pollution.
Lifting is planned to take place from 6am until 10pm each day, with these extended hours reducing two weeks of craning to one week to keep disruption to a minimum.
The team at QEH are doing everything possible to minimise any inconvenience, however some traffic delays on the main entrance road to the hospital are likely during peak times.
Access for patients and visitors arriving by car will not change, but they may experience a short delay accessing the patient car park.There will a temporary bus stop near the Roxburgh Children’s Centre and main patient car park, with signage in place.
