There are approximately 1,700 car parking spaces on the Royal Infirmary site. This will increase to 2,071 spaces when the new hospital for children and young people is opened in autumn 2018. There are currently 46 disabled parking spaces at the RIE, increasing to approximately 118 spaces when the new building opens.
