Independent Councillor, Domnick Connolly, has urged the HSE and Saolta to sort out the parking problems in the vicinity of Roscommon University Hospital.
Speaking earlier this week, Cllr. Connolly said: “I have been contacted by local residents in the area of Roscommon Hospital to highlight the parking problems at that location and I want to call on the HSE and Saolta to provide additional parking spaces in the vicinity of the hospital as soon as possible.
“People are parking illegally and blocking residents on an almost daily basis and the situation cannot continue.”
Cllr. Connolly said the problem would only get worse in future.
“With the new Endoscopy Unit about to open there will be even more activity at the hospital, and I am calling on the powers-that-be to provide additional car parking close to the hospital for patients, staff and visitors,” he concluded.
