No, calm down, Jon Stanhope remains Chief Minister.
But his deputy has announced that she’s kicked off construction of the long awaited Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
“I am very pleased to be able to turn the first sod and to officially get things underway on what will be a world class facility for women, children and their families from Canberra and the surrounding region,” Ms Gallagher said.
Over the past few weeks construction site fences have been installed to establish and secure the construction site. Site sheds and facilities have been put in place in readiness for the construction to begin.
Ms Gallagher joined staff, stakeholders and representatives of the project team to celebrate the important milestone. The new hospital will be built surrounding the existing Maternity building at the northern end of the Canberra Hospital campus.
