On Sunday, May 26, 2024, the ramps of the Q-Park St. Antonius parking garage near the St. Antonius Hospital in Nieuwegein collapsed. After an intensive investigation using search dogs and drones in the garage, the Utrecht Safety Region confirmed overnight that there are no casualties and that there is no risk of collapse for the entire parking garage. The Dutch Safety Board (OVV) has now started an investigation into the cause of the incident.

Q-Park, the parking operator, and Primevest, the owner of this parking garage, are deeply shocked by the situation and regret that this could happen. “We are relieved that visitors and staff remained unharmed. We would like to express our sincere thanks to the emergency services for their swift and professional response. The cause is currently unknown. We are fully cooperating with the investigation. The safety of our visitors, hospital staff, and Q-Park employees is paramount. Therefore, the garage will remain completely closed until further notice, and access is prohibited.”
