Wallsend MP Sonia Hornery is calling on the Health and Roads Ministers to do something to improve traffic gridlock at the John Hunter Hospital.

740 new car parks were added to the hospital campus in 2015, with thousands of extra car movements per day out of a single entry and exit location.

She believes the problem would be eased greatly if the Roads Minister ensured a full interchange is built as part of Stage 5 of the Newcastle inner-city bypass.

Sonia Hornery says the state government should also reinstate the free shuttle bus from McDonald Jones Stadium and the John Hunter to reduce  the number of people travelling to the hospital by car.
