Last Thursday the Queensland Government announced that Roma’s new $5.95 million health student accommodation precinct would continue to move ahead with the building contract awarded to Woollam Constructions.
The new health student accommodation will feature 20 bedrooms in modern residential pavilions, communal facilities and recreation areas, and will help the South West Hospital and Health Service attract and retain staff in the region.
The precinct will be built near the new $70 million Roma Hospital in Economic Development Queensland’s Clearview Rise residential estate.
Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick has said construction works would begin in August with the project set to raise the benchmark in regional student accommodation standards across Queensland.
The precinct will have a positive and significant impact on the community, providing a boost to economic activity through construction, improved health services in the region, better social connections, and enhanced learning opportunities.
It’s expected that the first intake of students will take up residency by mid-2021.
