Something should be done about these utility companies who find it quite acceptable to block off one entrance/exit to Arrowe Park Hospital, causing absolute chaos.
I parked in the staff car park at 17.00 today & the roadways were blocked up, with ambulances struggling to get in & staff who had worked all day trying to get home.
When I got back to the car park at 18.45 there was a queue (at a complete standstill)of one hell of a lot of cars.
Eventually many staff just gave up & used their fobs to open the entrance barrier & went out that way.
These clowns who cause this chaos should be able to fined & made to compensate people for the delays caused by their incompetence.

Utility companies?

You mean companies that need to be there in order to continue to supply us all with utilities?

I'd suggest that if staff had a fob to open the barrier then hospital management should have been alerted to the utility companies need to block the road and simply opened the barrier.

From the perspective of the utility company, you can't do right for doing wrong. If they didn't 'block' the entrance or exit then people would be complaining that their services weren't up to scratch.

They don't go around blocking hospital entrances for a giggle you know.

I know what your saying as i was also stuck on the car park for a total of two hours trying to get off even then the police was stopping traffic on the main road to let cars exit the hospital to ease the problems.Can Arrow Park hospital not look at another exit being made to ease problems?

This is probably what they need to do.

Micro-management isn't their strongest point.

I got caught up in it coming through from Asda. Although the lights have only been there for a few days( AFAIK) that gas leak has been there for ages. They dug the road up earlier this year, I guess trying to find it.
I rarely come home that way because the traffic along there is so bad on a normal day.
Part of the problem is that people sat on the main road get p1ssed off because they've been held up, try to get through the light and can't and so end up blocking the junction - it then snowballs from there with everyone getting frustrated.

If ambulances were struggling to get in (implying that people could have died or been otherwise harmed by a delay) then I would meekly suggest that someone indeed has messed up - big time. I just don't know who....?

There is a yellow sign there requesting that the junction be kept clear but as with so many things these days, I guess some people thought it didn't apply to them

People just do not understand the highway code, simple as.

I got caught speeding at 45 in a 40 (won't someone think of the children} and got a speed awareness course. The place was full of retards who had no idea of the rules of the road.

Generally speaking, drivers are pathetic. The majority are the reason for the persecution we all suffer on a daily basis.

I work at APH, got to my car at 4:50 and after 10 minutes hadn't moved an inch so locked the car up and got the bus home to Hoylake. A colleague who was parked near me told me that he finally exited the car park at 6:50, two hours for 200 yards!
What gets me is that the workies on the gas bugger off at 4pm and they were not there on my in to work this morning. Why they can't floodlight it and work overnight I don't know, but inconvenience doesn't cost anything, double time does!

With the way National Grid Gas have the road dug up the Woodchurch stretch of Arrowe Park Road, to have been of any use last night, a third exit would have to be on the Landican stretch of Arrowe Park Road - or another road entirely.

Stood at the bus stop on the main road last night, I'll agree this appears to be a major contributing factor as to why no-one could get off site. Though having visiting times end around the same time that a large portition of the admin staff finish doesn't help even when there aren't road works.

WOW I wish my shift was only 1 hour and 45 mins long!
So does that mean they need 4 people to cover an 8 hour shift all probably travelling 1up in a car so thats four cars - pah no wonder there are traffic jams round the hospital!!
No wonder the NHS is going downhill.

Glocko,might be an idea for you and your colleagues to use public tranport more often and the "WORKIES"once they have started a job they should work round the clock until completion.

That's right but as the general traffic is much lighter during the night there would no longer be the problem of traffic blocking the junction

But then the dangers of working in poor lights can cause more trouble so it's a catch 22 situation and people complain about the noise as there are flats opposite and I'm sure they wouldn't be happy with noise going on through the night I wouldn't be
