In a significant milestone early works have commenced on the NSW Government’s $740 million Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct redevelopment of Liverpool Hospital.
Early works include construction activities like demolition, road works and upgrades to gas, electricity and stormwater services to help prepare the site for construction.
Works mark the start of the hospital’s transformation into a world-class hub of medical excellence, education and research as it is redeveloped into one of NSW’s leading health precincts.
Initial site fencing and sheds have been installed to facilitate the first stage of works, Pedestrian and traffic access around the hospital will change throughout 2020 as ground and road works are carried out.
The early works are essential to prepare for the construction of the new precinct.
Bringing first-class health facilities to one of NSW’s fastest growing communities, the Precinct will include a larger emergency department, expanded intensive care unit, increased women’s and children’s services, integrated cancer services, enhanced ambulatory care and education and research facilities.
A further $50 million has been committed to build a new multi-storey car park, providing an additional 500 spaces for patients, visitors and staff. Work on the car park is due to commence later this year.
