Changes to Car Parking at Redcliffe Hospital in 2019
Construction of Redcliffe Hospital’s new multi-storey car park is set to get underway in the first quarter of 2019.
The new multi-storey car park will increase the number of car spaces at Redcliffe Hospital by 57%, making available over 1,100 spaces to hospital patients, visitors, and staff.
Once the multi-storey car park is completed, a fee will apply to all car parking on the hospital campus – access to pick-up and drop-off zones will continue to be free.
The fee structure and tariff rates that will apply to park at the hospital are still being determined by Queensland Health. Concessional parking rates will be available for eligible patients and carers, and also for hospital staff. The tariff rates will be announced before the car park opens. Until the multi-storey car park opens, there will continue to be no fee to park at the hospital.
The multi-storey car park will be built on top of the existing car park on the corner of ANZAC Avenue and Recreation Streets. It will take around a year for the multi-storey car park to be built, and during that time some existing car parking areas at the hospital will be closed. There will however, still be around 300 car spaces available on the hospital campus, including the drop-off and pick-up areas in front of the hospital and near the Emergency Department.
So that we can give priority to our patients and visitors during this period of construction, hospital staff working the day shift will be asked not to park on the hospital campus.
Instead, hospital staff working during the day at the hospital will be asked to park in the two temporary staff car parking areas located a five or ten-minute walk from the hospital. Hospital staff working an evening or night shift will continue to access the existing secure staff car park on the hospital campus.
The multi-storey car park was announced by the Palaszczuk Government last year, and funding approved as part of the 2018-19 State Budget.
