As part of enabling works for the Canberra Hospital Expansion Project, the construction of Building 8 on the Canberra Hospital campus requires the full closure of Hospital Road between the roundabout near the Multi-Storey Car Park/Building 28 and the roundabout outside of Building 2 Main Entry in both directions from Saturday 17 October until early January 2021.
The Hospital Road closure will impact both lanes (north and south) between the two roundabouts. This work will stop vehicle flows between both roundabouts with a Temporary Traffic Management Plan (TTMP) in place to divert traffic.
Pedestrian access will be maintained along the western side of Hospital Road, including to the Southern Multi-storey Car Park, Building 2 Main Entry, the Adult Mental Health Unit (AMHU) and Building 15.
Visitors to Building 15 will need to be dropped off close to the COVID Screening Point on Level 2 of the Multi-Storey Car Park, as the drop off area, including the Courtesy Bus stop outside of Building 15, will be temporarily closed for the duration of these works.
Taxi ranks along Hospital Road will also not be accessible during the works and will be relocated to the bus stop in front of Building 5.
Transport Canberra buses have been diverted from Hospital Road but continue to be accessible from bus stops on Bateson Road outside of the Adult Mental health Unit (AMHU), Gilmore Crescent and Yamba Drive.
We thank you for your patience as we undertake these works.
