Bilingual road markings, with the clear message – ‘Thank you NHS’ – have been painted on three roads as you drive into the University Hospital of Wales in the Heath.

The road markings which have been paid for by council contractors, Roman Road Lining and Amberon Traffic Management, were installed this morning (April 22).

The 12 metre by four meter markings have been painted in yellow are a further tribute to our front line NHS staff, as they continue in their vital work to combat the COVID-19 virus.

“The NHS staff are doing a fantastic job in very difficult conditions. The council is and will continue to do all that we can to assist the health board.”

The road markings have been painted on the road at the following locations:

  • The on-slip dedicated lane towards the hospital from Gabalfa Interchange
  • The dedicated off-slip road from the A48 travelling towards the hospital
  • The section of private road owned by the health board as you enter the hospital from King George V Drive, known as Heath Park Way.
