Coffs Harbour Sod Turn

The Coffs Harbour community is another step closer to a new ambulance station with Minister for Regional Health Bronnie Taylor and Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh today turning the first sod to mark the beginning of construction at the Marcia Street site.

Mr Singh said the new station will replace the existing station at Coffs Harbour Health Campus and boost frontline emergency care in the region.

“It is an exciting day for our community to see construction now under way on our new ambulance station which will be a game changer for our local paramedics,” Mr Singh said.

“This new station has been designed and tailored to the needs of the Coffs Harbour community and will enable paramedics to continue delivering high-quality emergency healthcare.

“The new Coffs Harbour Ambulance Station will also support the existing ambulance station recently completed in Sawtell and the refurbishment of Macksville station which is nearing completion.”

Coffs Harbour Ambulance Station is being constructed by Patterson Building Group, and will feature internal parking for up to 12 emergency ambulance vehicles, relief accommodation for paramedics, an internal wash bay, administration and office areas, logistics and storage and staff parking.
