Posted: August 24, 2023

Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) Health Services advises the public that there will be a change to traffic flow at the front entrance of the Health Sciences Centre which is related to the ongoing Emergency Department redevelopment project. This change will be in effect starting August 25, 2023 and will be in effect for approximately two years.

The changes are as follows:

  • The right lane in front of the main entrance will become a dedicated drop off lane with designated accessible drop off locations.
  • The left lane in front of the main entrance will become a designated thoroughfare lane.
  • The parking ticket kiosk at the front entrance will be exit only.
  • The area in front of the main entrance will be for emergency vehicles only and will have designated lanes and parking for these vehicles which will be clearly indicated by signage and road painting.

Line painting will start on August 25, 2023 with barriers and signage in place and is anticipated to be completed by September 1, 2023.

Please see the image below for a better understanding of the changes mentioned above.


NL Health Services thanks the general public for their patience and cooperation as this work to improve the infrastructure and services at the Health Sciences Centre continues.
