A new multi-storey carpark will be built at the Launceston General Hospital as part of a $580 million, 10-year upgrade to the facility.

Minister for Health, Mental Health and Wellbeing Guy Barnett said concept designs have been released and a development application will be lodged in the coming days.

“The LGH Masterplan identified parking and access as key considerations in providing improved access to the hospital precinct for patients, staff and visitors, and we are taking action to rectify this,” he said.

“The new multi-storey carpark will provide over 470 parking spaces within the LGH Precinct, which in turn will improve access to the expanded health care services that will be delivered through the Masterplan.”

During construction, the Health Department say they will create a temporary hospital carpark at the vacant site of the former Anne O’Byrne building to offset the loss of parking from the current ground-level carpark.

The seven-storey building will be fully accessible and include 10 accessible parking spaces and spaces for electric vehicles.

Construction is expected to begin in mid-2025 and be completed by late-2026.
