A new ambulance station in Epping is a step closer, after the state government awarded a contract for its construction.
Bowden Corporation has been appointed to build the multi-million dollar station on McDonald’s Road in Epping.
The new 24-hour, two-storey ambulance station will feature a five-bay garage for ambulances, six rest and recline areas, training facilities, a fully equipped kitchen and improved security and car parking, Mill Park MP Lily D’Ambrosio said.
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 under way shortly – once the paramedics from Epping are relocated to their temporary accommodation.
“With shovels expected to be in the ground shortly, even better emergency care for Epping families is just around the corner,” Ms D’Ambrosio said.
“This modern and advanced ambulance station will help ensure families living in the booming northern suburbs receive the best lifesaving emergency care, now and into the future.”
