Northland DHB Hospital Redevelopment Private: Car Parking

Project Future

If you are visiting Whangarei Hospital on a weekend or after 5pm and before 8.30am on a weekday, public car parking is free. The first one hour of car parking during the week is also free.

Meng Cheong, general manager, Finance, Funding & Commercial Services explains:

“To allow for even easier access to our campus on the weekends we will be raising the barrier arms to the main public car park from Saturday morning through to Sunday night and there is no need for you to take a ticket”.

If you are visiting the hospital Monday to Friday, between 8.30am to 5.00pm, you are required to take a ticket at the barrier arm.

“People need to drive right up to the ticket machine to take a ticket and the ticket needs to be validated at the pay kiosk before you drive out of the car park”.

The ticket machines and pay kiosks include easy to follow instructions on their use, and further assistance can be requested at the barrier arms or kiosks by pressing the help button.

Northland DHB is working with NZTA and WDC on a proposal for temporary lights to improve the traffic flows from Hospital Road into Maunu Road.  This work will be temporary until future redevelopment by NZTA, of this section of State Highway 14, is undertaken.
