INVERELL Hospital’s Moore Street entrance $1.4 million upgrade, to widen the road and provide for a more accessible and safe front entrance access, is now complete, Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall announced today.

Mr Marshall inspected the works alongside Inverell Shire Council staff last week, with the previous State Government contributing $911,654 of funding towards the project.

“The new entrance to Inverell Hospital looks terrific, with the road significantly wider and smoother and much better line of sight for motorists,” Mr Marshall said.

“As part of the new hospital construction, the main entrance was relocated to Moore Street but was not really up to scratch.

“The road has now been widened and an extra lane added to improve access to the hospital, and pavement defects have been adequately addressed.

“This original access site was causing safety concerns for the community due to poor sight distance, which has now been addressed thanks to the million-dollar upgrade.”

Mr Marshall said the funding injection was courtesy of the previous State Government’s Fixing Local Roads program, designed to help councils across regional areas invest in essential road maintenance and repair.

He said contributions were also received from Hunter New England Health ($337,250) and Inverell Shire Council ($200,096) with the total project costing $1,449,000.

“It is a significant upgrade undertaken by Health Infrastructure NSW which will make travelling to hospital – whether for a health assessment or to visit a loved one – that little bit safer and easier,” Mr Marshall said.
