Comments for Westmead Hospital A & E (Rooftop)
Cranes effect this pad and the approaches available. Toll and NSWA have put in place some major restrictions for their operations. Toll Crew please refer to the Toll Crane Amended Procedures document. (you must be logged in to see this)
Two cranes approx. 150 ft high are located 300 metres South West of the Westmead A&E rooftop helipad. They are on a construction site adjacent to Parramatta Marist High which is in the VAA-H for the GNSS approaches. The cranes are lit with red lights but they are very difficult to see at night. The MDA for the associated GNSS approaches into YWST have been increased by 50 ft by NOTAM on 31 Jan 18. Have these cranes been accounted for in the VAA-H MDA for the GNSS approaches?
