Wollongong Hospital parking woes set to ease with opening of multi-deck carpark

Wollongong Hospital’s parking woes should ease from Monday when the boomgates of the new $30.5million multi-deck carpark open up for business.

From 5.30am, patients, visitors and staff will be able to access the facility which features 750 new parking spaces and is connected to the existing carpark and to the hospital via a footbridge.

It will see the overall number of parking spaces double to around 1500, while the total floor area of the entire parking station is now equivalent to six football fields.

It’s been a massive project, taking 12 months to complete, with the amount of rock excavated during construction enough to fill 14 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
