Funds to Improve Access to Hospital

Funds to Improve Access to Hospital

Traffic congestion at the Orange health service could be soon a thing of the past, with the state government budget providingĀ $150,000 to the development of a new intersection at Huntley road as an alternative entry to the hospital.

The hospital has been struggling to cope with the volume of traffic entering and exiting the carpark of the hospital, with all traffic forced to use the only entry point on Forest road.

The new hospital has been operating with just the single entrance point since it opened inĀ 2011, causing delays at peak times of the day.

The Orange city council are expected to match the funding pledge form the state government, which would secure the finances to develop the new road that could act as a second passage for vehicles.
