In June 2018, the NSW Government announced funding of $740 million for the redevelopment of Liverpool Hospital into a world class health, research and education precinct (Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct – LHAP). The redevelopment will increase the inpatient bed numbers and significantly expand services.
The endorsed LHAP masterplan identified the need to demolish the existing P2 multi-storey car park to help realise efficiencies across the site in support of the campus masterplan. In March 2019, the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced $50 million towards 500 new parking spaces at Liverpool Hospital to help meet the projected growth associated with the redevelopment to 2026.
A tender process was undertaken and development application approval for the new multi-storey car park was granted in December 2020. ADCO Constructions Pty Ltd has now commenced work on the seven-storey car park, and construction will continue throughout 2021. The facility is anticipated to be operational in early 2022.
The new multi-storey car park will be accessed via Burnside Drive and easily accessible from various hospital entrance/exit doors. The facility will be boom-gated with security lighting and CCTV to provide safe parking options, and will include the provision of solar panels to support improved sustainability for the broader Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct.
