Traffic changes on Redbank Road

Early works are continuing for The Children's Hospital at Westmead Stage 2 Redevelopment, which includes the new Paediatric Services Building, a new Multi-storey Car Park, refurbishment of some existing areas and an improved main entry forecourt.

As part of these works, a section of Redbank Road is being realigned and widened to create the access into the new Multi-storey Car Park and improve traffic flows into the Precinct.

This work includes asphalting, building temporary lanes, road demolition, line marking, utility relocation, installing kerb and gutter and adjusting concrete and water filled barriers.

How will this work affect you
