RENAL HOSTEL —
217. Hon JACQUI BOYDELL to the parliamentary secretary
representing the Minister for Health:
I refer to the planned 19-bed renal
hostel on Porter Street in Kalgoorlie.
(1) Given that
the facility was due to be completed in May this year, are reports that the
tender for the contract to construct the facility is yet to be awarded correct?
(2) If the tender has not been awarded, will the
minister outline what the delay is and table any related documents?
(3) Will the minister give an
updated time line for completion of this facility?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question. I am advised of the following.
(1) Yes; that is correct.
(2) The delay is
related to the need to obtain additional site approvals prior to award of
tender. Approvals were received this week and the project is expected to
commence construction in early May 2019.
(3) The updated program for
completion of the facility is May 2020.
