Bendigo hospital’s air link bridge is now in place, taking shape at the weekend.
The two-storey bridge over Arnold Street joins the car park and helipad to the new hospital building.
Assembly of the modules started on Friday, with the final pieces put in place yesterday afternoon.
The upper level consisted of six modules and will be used by hospital staff to transport patients arriving at the helipad.
The lower level will be open to the public and will connect the hospital to a 505-space car park.
Works on a 358-piece facade and 54 cubic metres of concreting will begin from today.
Traffic management will be in place at Arnold Street, between Barnard and Stewart streets, until December 16.
The 135-tonne and 65-metre bridge will allow patients to be transported to and from the hospital by helicopter directly without needing to be transported to and from the airfield.
