Children’s Hospital carpark demolition
Demolition will begin this Friday 9 October at the old multi-storey staff carpark (P17) between The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and Central Acute Services Building (CASB).
The work represents the start of site preparations for the construction of the new Paediatric Services Building at the children’s hospital. This begins with removing the linkbridge between the carpark and Kids Research.
The linkbridge removal will close access to KR Lane from Hawkesbury Road - between the Westmead Institute of Medical Research (WIMR) and Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) - from 8am-5pm this Saturday and Sunday.
A number of measures are in place to manage potential noise, vibrations and dust created by sawcutting, drilling and a mobile crane.
Weekend works have been scheduled to minimise disruption to surrounding hospital facilities.
