A milestone in the construction of the Bungendore Ambulance Station with the concrete slab, structural steel, roof sheeting and external wall sheeting now complete.

“I am excited to see the progress. This is something the community fought hard for, and I am proud to be delivering on this important asset,” Member for Monaro, John Barilaro says.

“In the event that there is an accident on the road or someone injures themselves, we want to guarantee that urgent medical care is as fast as possible and this ambulance station will assist in making that happen.

“We will see the purpose-built station, which has been designed with input from paramedics and tailored to the specific needs of Bungendore and surrounds.”

Over 2000 people signed a successful petition which called for a more local ambulance services rather than relying on those out of Queanbeyan, with the first sod turned on the project in Bungendore in January this year.

Installation of internal services and internal wall finishes have commenced as well as external pavements and landscaping around the building. The project remains on track to be completed later this year ahead of an operational commissioning and fit-out phase.

The new station at 31 King Street includes internal parking for up to three emergency ambulance vehicles, administration and office areas and logistics and storage areas.

The project forms part of the NSW Government’s $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration program.
