NEW EPPING AMBULANCE STATION ANOTHER STEP CLOSER
The Andrews Labor Government is boosting ambulance resources in Epping – giving paramedics the facilities and support they need to quickly respond to local emergencies and save lives.
Minister for Health Martin Foley and Member for Mill Park, Lily D’Ambrosio today announced Bowden Corporation has been appointed to construct a new multi-million-dollar ambulance station on McDonald’s Road, Epping.
The new 24-hour, two-storey ambulance station will feature a five-bay garage for ambulances, six rest and recline areas for our hard-working paramedics to recuperate, training facilities, a fully equipped kitchen and improved security and car parking to make sure paramedics are safe.
The project will involve knocking down and rebuilding the existing ambulance station on McDonald’s Road to provide new, modern amenities.
Delivered by the Victorian Health Building Authority (VHBA), construction is expected to get underway shortly – once the hardworking paramedics from Epping are relocated to their temporary accommodation.
The Labor Government is investing around $249 million to upgrade and rebuild ambulance stations – providing better working conditions for paramedics and ensuring lifesaving emergency care is available for all Victorians.
