Liberal Candidate for South Coast Luke Sikora has announced today (Wednesday March 1, 2023) a re-elected NSW Liberal Government would make parking at Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital free for all patients, staff and visitors.
Mr Sikora said local residents as well as staff at the hospital had raised with him the cost of parking on a number of occasions, and he was pleased the NSW Liberal Government had listened and would deliver free parking from July 1 this year.
“This is fantastic news for hospital staff, patients and visitors to Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital,” Mr Sikora said.
“Free parking at the hospital will ease the parking burden on surrounding streets of the hospital and ensure staff do not have to walk long distances from work to their vehicles.
“In 2020, the NSW Liberal Government delivered the $11.8 million multi-storey car park on the hospital site which increased parking at the hospital by 50 per cent.
“There are now over 550 spaces across the hospital campus which will be free all day under a re-elected NSW Liberal Government.”
Mr Sikora said many people in the Shoalhaven community are facing pressures with the rising cost of living, and this is another measure to be implemented by the NSW Liberals which will put more money in the pockets of South Coast residents.
“I am proud to be part of a team who is committed to delivering improved health infrastructure and services across the South Coast,” Mr Sikora said.
“This includes the re-development of the Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital and the multi-million dollar upgrade of Milton Ulladulla Hospital.”
