Transport and parking

An important part of the Westmead Redevelopment is developing a transport and parking solution that makes Westmead more workable, livable and accessible.

A range of future transport solutions are being analysed against the needs of the Westmead precinct including the Parramatta Light Rail, Sydney Metro West, City of Parramatta’s proposed Western Sydney Regional Ring Road, cross-regional bus routes to strengthen the reach of public transport as well as improvements to the walking and cycling networks with a focus on connecting the precinct with the Westmead train station and Parramatta CBD.

Car parking at Westmead

Parking is at a premium on most hospital sites in metropolitan Sydney and parking costs at Westmead need to be equitable, but also sustainable. There must be balance between investing in car parking and investing in health service delivery.
A campus-wide car parking plan has been developed in consultation with staff and users. It considers the needs of staff, patients, visitors, emergency vehicles, on-call medical staff and other users.
The long term plan for the Westmead Redevelopment is to ease parking stress by creating new car parking, working with Government to improve public transport and improving existing parking areas, roads and wayfinding.
The car parking solution has was jointly led by Western Sydney Local Health District, The Children's Hospital at Westmead and Health Infrastructure.

Maintaining parking during the redevelopment

The project has committed to no net loss of car parking spaces during redevelopment.
