Heavy truck route information

As part of the enabling works currently underway at Base Hospital, a large number of heavy truck movements are needed to bring in construction materials and remove spoil.

To avoid trucks passing on narrow residential streets, construction traffic will leave the hospital site via Doone Street onto Devon Street.

In order to maintain traffic flow and increase safety, New Plymouth District Council has advised that parking will be permitted on the eastern side of Doone Street only for the duration of the works.

Temporary yellow no-stopping lines will painted along the full length of the western side of Doone Street. There will also be a section of no-stopping yellow lines installed on the north west side of Doone Street at the intersection with Lyn Street.

Works traffic entering the site will approach via Devon St and Lorna Street, using the Lyn Street and Lorna Street (when accessible to works traffic) entrances.

Enabling works are expected to be completed by September 2022.

If you have any feedback or concerns please get in touch through our feedback form.
