Logan Hospital car park

What's new

June 2018 update:

We are almost there!  The site is basically finished with final touches occurring over the next few weeks to complete the automated lighting, security cameras, pathways and stairs, and to install boom gates which are essential for the sections of the park allocated to Logan Hospital Staff.

The landscaping is being completed around the perimeter and traffic islands which will contribute to the overall aesthetic of the car park for years to come.  Our neighbours will look forward to the removal of the last of the machinery and hoarding in the coming weeks with the open day announcement ready to be made to Logan Hospital staff by the end of the month.  Watch this space…

About the Project

Metro South Health is constructing a car park to provide convenient, local parking for Logan Hospital staff.

Currently, staff park in several areas both on and off-site. As the demand for Logan Hospital services has grown, accessing available car parking has become increasingly difficult and time consuming, particularly for day shift staff.

A short-term partnership agreement has been reached between Metro South Health, Department of Employment, Small Business and Training and TAFE Queensland, which includes the construction of a car park on TAFE land adjacent to the hospital.

$5 million has been allocated from the Queensland Government to deliver the car park project. This project is the first part of the greater plan for Meadowbrook to fulfil its potential as a health and wellbeing precinct, supported by well-planned infrastructure and services.

Meadowbrook planning also explores the opportunity for Logan Hospital to evolve into a ‘teaching hospital’ where TAFE and University functions coalesce on the hospital site to support this initiative.

This project, including proposed initiatives in the Meadowbrook Master Plan, caters for the predicted growth of the region, and will have significant long-term benefits for the community.
