With the Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment project planning stages completed, we have begun preparations of the building site for construction.

Excavation works commenced at Goulburn Base Hospital on Wednesday 4 April 2018, to prepare for the Community Mental Health extension to the Community Health Building. This has affected fleet and staff parking.

What does this mean?

The current allocated fleet, disability and staff parking has been reduced with changes to the existing carpark. The limited spaces available have been reserved for fleet and disability parking only. This means that staff and private vehicles will need to make use of public parking areas further away from the hospital. Consider parking further away from the immediate campus area, car-pooling, riding a bike or walking to work.

This also means that you will be seeing more construction activity occurring around the Community Health building as the site hoarding is erected. There may be some noise and vibration as well as an increase in construction vehicle movements throughout the area.

With the increase in construction activity and disruption across the site, our priority is ensuring that staff, patients and visitors are kept safe while these works are ongoing.

Disruptions to parking

Site works commenced at the Community Health Building on Wednesday 4 April 2018 and will continue through to September 2018. Hutchinson Builders will be constructing an extension to the existing building which will increase its size by approximately 275 square metres, to house the Community Mental Health Drug and Alcohol Team.

During this time the construction program requires excavation of the building pad, installation of in-ground services, ground slab, structural framing, roof and wall cladding, interior finishes as well as some minor landscaping.

Hospital access

A site boundary was installed on Wednesday 4 April 2018.

  • Loading dock access is highlighted in orange below

We endeavour to minimise the amount of disruption to the hospital, however there may be times where disruptions are unavoidable.

What can I do?

Plan ahead. Find a new place to park and work it into your current routine. Spaces closer to the hospital should be left for patients, visitors and evening staff to help ensure their safety. In the event that parking is not available close to the hospital or cars can’t be moved during a shift, evening staff are urged to contact HASA at the end of a shift to ensure they get to their cars safely. Boundary footpaths will also be set up for the safety of our community. Staff travelling between GoBH, CMH and CH buildings are urged to walk along the designated footpaths only.

Parking Options

Additional parking is available on Faithfull, Clifford and Goldsmith streets. 
  • Faithfull Street (from Verner Street along Victoria Park) is about a 10-12 minute walk to the main entry.
  • Clifford Street along Victoria Park is a 3-5 minute walk to the main entry.
  • Goldsmith Street (from Cowper Street intersection to Faithfull Street intersection) is a 3-5 minute walk to the main entry.
