Work begins on Wagga Wagga's new Ambulance Station

Posted 24 Nov 2015
Acting NSW Ambulance Chief Executive, Commissioner David Dutton and local paramedics today turned the sod on Wagga Wagga's new $4.4 million NSW Ambulance station.

The ceremony marked the beginning of construction at the Turvey Park site which is scheduled for completion in late 2016.

The event was welcomed for the new station which will replace the almost 90-year-old current station on Johnston Street. Our Wagga Wagga NSW Ambulance station has served its community well since 1927 when it was designed to house four crews. Since then our presence in Wagga Wagga has grown significantly.

The new station will have 14 ambulance vehicle bays, a zone office, a fleet maintenance workshop and an improved training complex for the region's paramedics.

Wagga Wagga is the first station to be built as part of the NSW Government's $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration program, which will deliver new or rebuilt regional and rural NSW Ambulance stations to communities across NSW.
