Carpark and landscape work begins in Geraldton Hospital redevelopment
Fences were expected to be erected by tomorrow morning at the staff carpark of the Geraldton Health Campus so the $73.3 million redevelopment of the facility can begin.
WA Country Health Service regional director Jeff Calver said patients and visitors can continue to access on site parking via the Shenton Street entry.
The forward works, delivered by ADCO Constructions Pty Ltd, include an ambulance entry on Shenton Street and reconfiguration of the main entry to the health campus.
There will also be a new carpark close to the main entry and a southern carpark and access road from Onslow Street.
Mr Calver said the carpark works will be completed in about four months.
“We have endeavoured to minimise any inconvenience works at the facility may cause patients and visitors,” he said.
“Please follow all temporary signage and way-finding instructions and we will keep you informed as works progress.”
Mr Calver said delivering a huge infrastructure project such as the redevelopment of the Geraldton Health Campus involved redirecting a lot of traffic to ensure works could go on as smoothly as possible.
“We have sought to accommodate the needs of patients, visitors and staff during the works and we seek the community’s understanding and patience during this temporary inconvenience,” he said.
When complete, the new parking spaces are expected to hold approximately 470 bays, with additional disabled parking, improved walkways, landscaping and improved lighting.
