There could be traffic delays in Docker Street and the car park has temporarily lost a few spaces as stage three of the Wagga Base Hospital redevelopment begins.
From Tuesday, some of the drop-off bays and accessible car parking spaces will be removed in front of the hospital to allow for the builders to get to work on the new ambulatory care building and footpath leading into the hospital.
A spokeswoman for the Murrumbidgee Local Health District said the number of accessible spaces across the health campus would continue to meet national building code standards.
Meanwhile, traffic controls are in place in Docker Street as heavy vehicle traffic increases with the work.
Stage three, which is expected to take about two years, will include a new five-storey ambulatory care building adjacent to Wagga Base Hospital, 28 aged care beds, 24 rehabilitation beds, a 24-bed mental health inpatient unit and a 20-chair renal dialysis unit, an education area including a library, conference rooms and a lecture theatre and a basement car park.
A $30 million multi-storey car park is due to be started once the ambulatory care building is finished.
