SITE CHOSEN FOR BUNGENDORE AMBULANCE STATION
The Bungendore Ambulance Station is one step closer to construction, with the station’s preferred site announced by Member for Monaro John Barilaro today.
Mr Barilaro said land at 31 King Street had been identified as the preferred site for the first NSW Ambulance Station for Bungendore.
“It is great news for residents and families in Bungendore and surrounds, as well as those travelling along the busy Kings Highway, to know that the NSW Government is progressing with work and planning for the new station,” Mr Barilaro said.
“I am confident that this site is very well placed to service the region, and will be a location that will allow NSW Ambulance paramedics to respond to patients when they need it, and where they need it.
“Designed with input from local paramedics, the purpose-built Bungendore Ambulance Station will deliver a fantastic working environment for paramedics, tailored to the needs of the local community.”
Mr Barilaro said the NSW Government is investing in purpose-built and modern ambulance stations to support the clinical capability of our highly trained paramedics, with the Bungendore region benefitting from this $122 million roll-out.
Once completed, the Bungendore Ambulance Station will include:
– Internal parking for up to three emergency ambulance vehicles
– A delivery and loading bay
– Relief quarters
– Staff parking
– Administration and office areas
– Logistics and storage areas
Mr Barilaro said the next steps include further design finalisation and planning approval for the new station.
To date, 23 upgraded, rebuilt or new regional and rural ambulance stations have been announced under the NSW Government’s Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration program. This represents the biggest regional and rural transformation of NSW Ambulance infrastructure in the organisation’s history.
