First sod turned at new Goulburn Ambulance Station

February 15, 2019

This week marked a significant milestone in the construction of a new Ambulance station at Goulburn, with a sod-turning ceremony marking the official start of construction.

This is a significant milestone in the NSW Government’s election commitment to build a new ambulance station at Goulburn as part of the $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program.

The NSW Government is investing in purpose-built and modern NSW Ambulance stations to support the clinical capability of our highly trained paramedics.

The new station at 211 Bourke Street will enable local NSW Ambulance paramedics to better meet the current and future demand for mobile emergency medical care in Goulburn and surrounds.

The purpose-built station has been designed with input from local paramedics and tailored to the needs of the local Goulburn community and surrounds.

The new station will ensure local paramedics have fit-for-purpose infrastructure to better meet the emergency medical care needs of the local community.

Once completed, the Goulburn station will include:
  • Internal parking for up to eight emergency ambulance vehicles
  • Administration & office areas
  • Staff amenities
  • Multipurpose meeting/training room
  • Logistics and storage areas
  • Staff parking
To date, 23 upgraded, rebuilt or new regional and rural ambulance stations have been announced under the RAIR program, including completed stations at Wagga Wagga, Coolamon, Ardlethan, Harden, Molong, Griffith, Kiama, Berry, Bay & Basin, Toukley, Wauchope, Hamlyn Terrace and Bathurst.

This represents the biggest regional and rural transformation of NSW Ambulance infrastructure in the organisation’s history.
