New Footscray Hospital site has had a makeover!

The site of the new Footscray Hospital has had a makeover, with more than 900 metres of artwork now wrapping the hoarding at the site on the corner of Geelong and Ballarat Roads.

The artworks feature images and information about the hospital’s design, keeping residents, workers and the community both informed and safe.

Viewing holes have also been incorporated on Federal Street, Tiernan Street and Geelong Road, so you can take a look at the construction works.

As the project continues to develop, we will work with the community and its artists to add some local flavour to the hoarding and change the artwork on a regular basis.

To make sure you don’t miss any further updates, sign up to our email list to receive the latest news about the new Footscray Hospital project.

The hospital is scheduled to open in 2025.
