Carpark Changes At Rockhampton Hospital Nearing Completion

Visitors to the Rockhampton Hospital will soon be able to park their vehicle within a short walking distance to the facility.

Capricornia MP Michelle Landry said parking cars at the hospital, which had been serious issue for many years, would no longer be a problem.

“I am tickled pink to see this vital piece of infrastructure so close to being open to the public,” Ms Landry said.

“With 597 car park spaces for staff, patients and visitors, the new hospital carpark will be a godsend for thousands of Central Queenslanders who have to visit the region’s major base hospital.

“This was the number one issue for me at the 2016 election and I can tell you it took quite a bit of convincing my colleagues just how important it was to our community.

“This new carpark not only looks magnificent, it will provide far better access than we had before, with patients and visitors alike often having to park hundreds of metres away, trudging up hill and down dale just to get the treatment they need or to visit loved ones.

“I couldn’t be happier to see it actually built and congratulate the CQHHS on keeping the parking charges so low compared with hospital parking options in other cities.”

LNP Senator Matt Canavan said the Rockhampton Hospital Car Park Re-Development was an election promise fulfilled by the LNP.

“This is local infrastructure that will make a real difference to people visiting the hospital, and residents in the local area,” Senator Canavan said.

“This new car park is going to take pressure off Rockhampton’s suburban streets and make the experience of visiting the hospital just that little bit easier for everyone.”
