New bus stops at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh

Two new bus stops will open at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh from Monday 25 May 2015. The new routes will see buses coming from town, and out of town travelling through the site. 

One of the new stops will be located on Little France Crescent, with the other situated between the University of Edinburgh Chancellor’s Building and the University of Edinburgh Queen’s Medical Research Institute (click here for large map).
 
The main bus terminal moved from the West to East side of the site in May 2014 and the loop road, which runs around the site, has now been redeveloped to allow buses to pass through.
 
This development forms part of a programme of works which have been carried out to prepare the site for the new £150 million Royal Hospital for Sick Children and Department of Clinical Neurosciences.
 
Work started on the new hospital in early 2015 and the new building is anticipated to open to patients in autumn 2017.
 
Brian Currie, Project Director, Royal Hospital for Sick Children and Department of Clinical Neurosciences said: "The majority of the road works have now been completed and I would like to thank patients, visitors and the public for their understanding as these developments have taken place.
 
"The new hospital will conjoin the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh via a link building between both adult and child Emergency Departments. This link building will run across Little France Crescent and therefore the need to reconfigure the bus routes has been an important part of the construction programme.
 
"We would again like to thank you for your understanding as construction of the new hospital and work to redevelop departments within the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh continues."
