Christmas in Democracy goes on as the clock ticks down to the caretaker period.
Today Simon Corbell has turned the sod on Charnwoods combined ambulance and fire station of the world to come.
“Residents in West Belconnen will have increased emergency service coverage with this $21.3million investment by the ACT Labor Government with a combined state-of-the-art ambulance and fire service to come online by late 2013,” Mr Corbell said.
“We know that emergency response time is a critical factor in saving lives, property, and the environment and this new station will form part of this government’s planned improvements to the network of emergency facilities across the Territory.
“To be delivered by successful contractor Manteena Pty Ltd, the Charnwood station is a key first step in the government’s station upgrade and relocation strategy which focuses on improving emergency services coverage across the Territory.”
