Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Scot MacDonald, has announced that construction on the new NSW Ambulance station at Toukley has been completed.
MacDonald said the completion was a significant milestone in the NSW Liberal National Government’s election commitment to build a new station at Toukley, as part of the $122m Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program.
The new NSW Ambulance station includes: Internal parking for up to four emergency ambulance vehicles; Administration and office areas; Staff amenities; Logistics and storage areas; Internal wash bay; and, Staff parking. Health Infrastructure and NSW Ambulance will now begin the carefully planned internal works and fit out, and then operational commissioning of the station.
“This is before a staged roll-out of services which will ensure the ongoing delivery of highquality emergency care during the transition and relocation from the current temporary station to the new station,” MacDonald said. “Designed with input from local paramedics, the station will enable NSW Ambulance to better meet the mobile emergency care needs of Toukley and surrounds for years to come,” he added. The station is scheduled to become fully operational early to mid 2019.
