SOD turn marks latest redevelopment milestone

NSW Minister for Health Brad Hazzard joined Member for Holsworthy Melanie Gibbons at Liverpool Hospital in early December to mark the start of construction on the hospital’s new $50 million multi-storey car park.

Development applications for both the multi-storey car park and Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct main works are now approved, paving the way for on-ground works to commence.

Turning the first sod alongside NSW Government representatives, Liverpool Hospital General Manager Karen McMenamin said the new car park would be a welcome addition to the campus on completion in 2022.

“Commencement of construction on the new car park is a significant milestone in the delivery of the broader Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct project, with a total of $790 million being invested in the redevelopment of Liverpool Hospital to enhance services and facilities in support of the growing community,” Ms McMenamin said.

The multi-storey car park will help meet the projected growth associated with the redevelopment, enhance the quality of car parking facilities, and improve accessibility to health services for patients and their families.

ADCO Constructions Pty Ltd has been awarded the contract for the seven-storey car park, which will provide an additional 500 parking spaces for the campus.

The Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct project will see the redevelopment of Liverpool Hospital into a world class health, research and education precinct, creating thousands of jobs during construction to 2026 and beyond.

Main works construction is due to commence in early 2021.
