In May 2012 the final go-ahead was given for the new hospital. United
Utilities have diverted a main water pipe, which was running through the
middle of the site, and now goes round the edge. Double yellow lines have
been put on Isel Road. The first stage of the development will be to make
a new car park for the new hospital. This will be for patients, staff,
and visitors to the existing buildings, and also for contractorsí vehicles.
