There’ll be temporary changes to car parking on the campus from early September due to the WWHS Redevelopment Stage 3 project.
The 1-hour main entry carpark will close from 7am, Monday 7 September 2020 for approximately 6 months.
As a result, the current staff car parking area on the campus’ north end off Edward Street will be changed to 2-hour general use parking.
An evening shuttle bus service will be introduced to take staff on the afternoon shift to their vehicles in streets surrounding the campus.
We understand that this temporary car park closure will impact staff. The temporary closure is required to extend the Stage 3 construction site
to undertake car parking, footpath, paving and landscaping works. As a part of these works, a small number of trucks will use Yabtree Street, Doris Roy Lane and Lewis Drive.
Please also note:
- Drop-off zones to remain in front of the Emergency Department.
- Additional accessible car parking and after-hours JMO parking will be available in front of the Mental Health Unit.
- Pedestrian access to the Hospital’s temporary main entry will still be via the footpath on Lewis Drive.

A linkway to connect the new Stage 3 building with the first floor of the Acute Services Building is under construction.
As a safety precaution, exclusion zones will be established in the Support Services Building (SSB) ground floor corridor. Details here.
Please be advised that there’ll be a change to pedestrian access to the Wagga Wagga Base Hospital (WWBH) this week-end due to the first stage of works to remove signage from the 5th floor of the WWBH.
As a safety precaution, pedestrians will be diverted around the Hospital fire stairs access towards the temporary main entry from 7am Saturday 19 September until 6pm Sunday 20 September. A traffic control officer will be available to direct pedestrians.
Work on the level 4 link way into the WWBH Rehabilitation Gymnasium will be undertaken from 4pm to 7.30pm during the week and 7.30am to 7.30pm on the week-ends from Monday 21 September 2020 to Friday 2 October 2020.
This work will see the relocation of exercise equipment, erection of hoarding, use of hand drills and drivers as well as demolition and construction.
There will be increased noise for staff, patients and visitors.
We apologise and thank you for your patience during the Stage 3 project
