Sod turning ceremonies in Cowra and Grenfell have kicked off the official start to construction of two new ambulance stations in central west NSW.
Cowra’s new station will be at Kite Street, with Grenfell’s adjacent to the Multi-Purpose Health Service on the Mid Western Highway.
The modern new ambulance stations will be purpose-built to ensure local paramedics have fit-for-purpose infrastructure, helping them better meet the emergency medical care needs of Cowra, Grenfell and surrounds.
Designed with input from local paramedics, the stations are tailored to meet local community needs.
The new stations form part of the NSW Government’s $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program
To date, 23 upgraded, rebuilt or new regional and rural ambulance stations have been announced under the RAIR program. This includes completed stations at Wagga Wagga, Coolamon, Ardlethan, Harden, Molong, Griffith, Kiama, Berry, Bay & Basin and Toukley.
These exciting RAIR projects represent the biggest regional and rural transformation of NSW Ambulance infrastructure in the organisation’s history!
