Visitors to Goulburn Hospital and Health Service will need to be aware of changes to on site car parking as the redevelopment main works continue.
Goulburn Health Service General Manager Denis Thomas said the main entrance ‘semi-circle’ carpark off Goldsmith Street will be closed for approximately one week from Monday 11 November 2019.
“The NSW Government’s $150 million Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment is underway, and Southern NSW Local Health District thanks the local community for their patience during the ongoing works,” Mr Thomas said.
“Along with construction activity around the facility, residents may also notice increased activity and construction vehicle movements throughout the area.”
Other than accessible spaces, visitor parking in the semi-circle will move on-street where it will remain for the duration of the redevelopment works.
Emergency vehicle access will be maintained at all times, with traffic control measures in place.
People needing to access the hospital can continue to do so via the main entrance at the front of the facility, with accessible parking spaces still available at the main entrance.
When the main entrance carpark reopens, there will be one five-minute drop-off zone and three 15-minute drop-off zones for the emergency department. There will also be spaces reserved for accessible drivers and specialist staff with spaces colour coded and sign posted.
The $150 million Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment includes a four-storey Clinical Services Building with a new emergency department, medical imaging and an intensive care unit.
Mr Thomas said the SNSWLHD priority is to ensure patients, carers, visitors, staff and the community are kept safe while these works are ongoing.
