At the community briefing in Mullumbimby on Byron Central Hospital (reported in Echonetdaily ‘New Byron hospital to open next July’), understandable interest was shown in the onsite parking capacity.
For the community’s information, the hospital will have 195 Parking bays, 28 bicycle spaces, and 16 motorcycle spaces.
A CT scanner, not an MRI machine, will be a major component of the hospital’s imaging
The outcomes of the tender process to provide surgical services are expected to be known later this year.
Should a successful tenderer be found, a planning process will need to be undertaken before construction of this area can begin.
The hospital’s planned opening date refers to July next year, not next month, as some readers might have understood.
We thank the (Byron Shire) Echo and Echonetdaily, and the community, for their interest in this milestone project. Everyone is welcome to attend the on-site community information day on Sunday, 28 June, 9am-1pm.
Parking will be available on the Ewingsdale site, and project management staff will be in attendance to answer any questions about the hospital’s construction.
