Is more parking included in the Westmead Redevelopment?

Yes. A new multi-storey car park is under construction at the Mons Road end of the site. This is the area allocated for services which support the hospital, including parking. There will be direct access from this car park into Westmead Hospital. 

The new multi-storey car park is eight storeys high and will see a significant increase to car parking spaces at Westmead.

Will there be fewer car parking spaces during redevelopment?

Work is being carefully planned to ensure we maintain our current parking levels during redevelopment. A new temporary car park is being planned to reprovision parking during construction. With the completion of the new multi-storey car park, in quarter four of 2017, there will be an increase in available car parking at Westmead.

What about public transport?

With up to 50,000 people expected to be working in the Westmead precinct by 2036, good public transport is critical to the success of the precinct transformation. The Westmead Redevelopment is one of a number of partners involved in consulting with NSW Government about improving public transport.

Will there be more beds?

Yes, there will be more inpatient beds to manage increased demand for hospital services due to our rapidly growing population. People are living longer with chronic and complex conditions, which is also increasing demand for services. But as well as more inpatient beds, we'll also be considering ways to keep people out of hospital, reduce the length of hospital stays, and expand outpatient (ambulatory care) services and services offered in the home.
