Construction officially begins on parkade at Regina General Hospital

Construction is officially beginning for the Regina General Hospital Parkade project.

The northwest corner of the parking lot has been fenced off over the past couple weeks and big equipment is on site.  

Minister responsible for SaskBuilds Joe Hargrave said the parkade will provide safe parking for visitors and health care employees as they come to work every day.

“The parkade project is also a clear demonstration of the shared commitment of the Saskatchewan Health Authority and the Government of Saskatchewan to the safety and well-being of our patients, visitors and dedicated staff,” said Saskatchewan Health Authority Chief Executive Officer Andrew Will in a media release.

The facility will include 1005 stalls, with 873 in the parkade and 132 on the surface, for a net increase of 686 parking stalls from the previous setup.

Construction is expected to be completed by November 2024.
