Is more parking included in the Westmead Redevelopment?

Yes. A new multi-storey car park for Westmead Hospital is now complete. 

Will there be fewer car parking spaces during redevelopment?

Work is being carefully planned to ensure we maintain our current parking levels during redevelopment. Temporary car parking and road diversions may be in place during construction, so please check before you travel. 

Read more on our car parking page.

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.

Read more on our transport page. Read more about the Westmead precinct, one of the largest health, research and education precincts in the world.

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.
