Onsite investigations and technical studies

The Geotechnical investigations have been completed, which involved rigs on the site to take soil samples, with results informing the planning and design for the new hospital.

Other on-site due diligence investigations, including topographical and ecological surveys, were completed ahead of acquiring the site.

Further detailed planning studies have also been undertaken, covering assessment reports on site contamination, bushfire, water impact, biodiversity, agricultural, traffic, heritage, noise and vibration, air quality, aviation, social impact, and infrastructure management.

The findings of these assessments are included in the project’s Stage 1 Environmental Impact Statement and Response to Submissions report, available on the Department of Planning and Environment’s website.
