Construction will soon begin on Wagga Base Hospital's multi-storey car park, which is now scheduled to start in June and finish by late 2022.
The 358-space multi-storey car park will be a significantly scaled down version of the one promised in 2018 by NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard.
The project will also include two ground level parking areas which will bring the combined total of new parking spaces to 387, still less than half of the 800 spaces initially promised.
When combined with the existing spaces at the hospital, the total number of parking spaces will be 900, which is 300 less than the 1200 originally planned.
The contract for the job has been awarded to ADCO Constructions, which will be in charge of building the multi-storey car park as well as the two separate ground level car park area.
Murrumbidgee Local Health District Jill Ludford said she welcomed the awarding of the contract.
"This project will make it easier for patients, visitors and staff to park on the health campus and access health care and work," she said.
When complete the multi-storey car park will be roughly 19 metres tall, will have eight accessible car parking spaces, which NSW Health says will be free for all staff and visitors.
Not all of the promised $30 million will be going towards the construction of the car parks, with the project only having $25.4 million in capital investment value.
A Health Infrastructure previously told The Daily Advertiser the rest of the $30 million would be spent on demolition of buildings to make way for parking, improved service vehicle access in the loading dock area, and minor road works throughout campus to improve traffic flow.
Brad Hazzard told parliament the multi-storey car park had been scaled down because of the incoming UNSW building, which will take up space previously earmarked for the car park.
