If you were driving along Electra Street in the early hours you would have been surprised to see a house moving down the road.
On Wednesday, crews were busy separating and loading the house, ready for removal just after midnight.
It’s another step in the Friendly Society Private Hospital’s expansion, according to Stuart Bonnett, senior manager for business development.
“Another house is on its way to a block of land to make a home for a family, marking the next step forward in the Friendlies Hospital master plan expansion process,” Stuart said.
“The now-empty site will be utilised as part of a new road that will be pushed through from Crofton Street to Electra Street and will provide more parking for patients and visitors to the hospital.
“The new road will open up access to the hospital and is the first stage in the $32 million expansion plan which will see an increase in the number of theatres at the Friendlies along with an additional unit and improved day surgery access and recovery areas.”
The $32 million stage six expansion of The Friendly Society Private Hospital in Bundaberg will place it among the leading private hospitals in regional Australia.
