  • Penrith Stadium redevelopment expects to kick off after the 2024 NRL season, and expects to reopen in 2026.
  • AW Edwards has been appointed the building contractor for the $479 million Ryde Hospital Redevelopment.
  • Works on the hospital are expected to commence in mid-2024

The Penrith Stadium is set to be transformed, with the New South Wales (NSW) Government committing $309 million to redeveloping the stadium.

A refresh of the sporting ground includes a new western grandstand and a significantly redeveloped eastern grandstand increasing the ground capacity to 25,000. Grandstands have been reconfigured to maximise seating with premium views between the try lines to be steeper.

Penrith Stadium will also see new scoreboards, sound systems, and upgraded lighting.

More food and beverage outlets, along with increased amenities will help reduce wait times for fans on game days.

Players will also benefit, with four new change rooms, helping to grow female representation in rugby league and other sporting codes.

The hills at the northern and southern end of the playing field will be retained, reflecting feedback from over 3000 fans, families and community members. Additionally, the training field to the west of the stadium will be remodelled to create a stadium precinct with quality open space for outdoor community, sporting and entertainment events.

The redevelopment is expected to kick off after Penrith Stadium closes following the 2024 NRL season. Penrith Stadium expects to reopen in 2026.

Building contractor appointed to Ryde Hospital Redevelopment

AW Edwards has been appointed the building contractor for the $479 million Ryde Hospital Redevelopment.

Construction on the hospital refresh is expected to commence in mid-2024, including the demolition of old buildings, construction of new hospital buildings and refurbishment of existing hospital spaces.

“This project will expand capacity at the hospital, delivering more adult overnight beds, plus it’ll feature a brand-new ED, ICU, operating theatres, a custom-built ambulatory care centre and a paediatric short stay unit,” said NSW Health Minister, Ryan Park.

“This is a major redevelopment which will provide new and enhanced services within a modern, contemporary facility to ensure patients continue to receive the best possible care.”
