Where to park as Rocky Hospital car park work starts

THE long-awaited multi-level car park at Rockhampton Hospital is well on its way to becoming a reality, but big changes are being made to existing parking options as a result.

The vacant former Top Shop site on Millroy St will be closed from Thursday, as it is developed into a temporary sealed car park.

Until then, a temporary car park will open at CQUniversity's Canning St campus for staff, patients and visitors to use between 7am and 6pm, with exit only after 6pm.

It will include 117 car spaces.

The site is not accessible from the main TAFE entrance, but Canning St up from GunnaDo hardware.

While this measure is in place, CQ Health and Hospital Service will run a courtesy bus for staff , patients and visitors from the car park entrance with the first loop starting at 5.30am.
