Site prep to start for parkade project at Regina General Hospital

The long awaited construction of a parkade at the General Hospital in Regina is about to get underway.  This will mean a number of changes to the parking system at the hospital.

According to the Saskatchewan Health Authority, site preperation will begin one week from today on October 10th.

Fencing will go up in the north west corner of the parking lot, forcing the re-location of more than 300 parking stalls.

People will pay to park through a pay station in the hospital, or in an app called “Park-Mobile”.

The SHA says its aware losing more than 300 stalls for the short term will cause more parking issues in and around the hospital, and its working to minimize those impacts.

Construction is expected to take a year and a half.
