Upgrades to road surfaces and kerbing have commenced at Stanthorpe Hospital.

The works are expected to be completed by Wednesday 6 April.

“There will be some changes to access to the campus during this time, so to minimise disruption, the works program has been broken into stages,” Stanthorpe Hospital Director of Nursing Chris Smith said.

“The area marked Stage One on the attached map [PDF, 287kB] will be closed from March 21-27, however access to the rear of the campus and the Outpatients car park should not be affected.

“The area marked Stage Two, and the southern Day Street entrance will be closed from Saturday 25 March to Wednesday 29 March.

“If you need to get to the rear of the hospital from Day Street during this time, please use the entrance at the intersection of Day and Flemming streets.”

Mr Smith said stages one and two involved the installation of kerbing and drainage improvements, with stage three dedicated to bitumen upgrades.

“We’re very much looking forward to stage three of the program, which will upgrade the bitumen at the rear of the main building, between the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) ramp, the kitchen and the Outpatients building,” he said.

“The area will be closed from Wednesday 29 March until Friday 5 April.

“During this time there will be no access to the rear entrance to the Emergency Department (ED), adjacent to the QAS ramp, so we would ask anyone going to ED please use the main entrance at the front of the hospital.

“We have been liaising with QAS and arrangements are in place for QAS to use alternative drop-off and pick-up points while stage three upgrade works are underway.

“We plan to have the campus entrances from McGregor Terrace, Bridge Street, and at the intersection of Day and Flemming streets, accessible as usual during the works.

“In the event of a change, signs will be in place to direct traffic.

“We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation while we complete these important upgrades to the hospital’s infrastructure.”
