Construction underway for new Tatura and Broadford ambulance branches
The sod has been turned on new ambulance branches in Tatura and Broadford today, signalling the start of early works.
When complete, these new state-of-the-art branches will provide modern facilities for paramedics and enable faster emergency care response times for the community.
These new ambulance branches will be purpose-built with four dedicated ambulance response bays, four rest and recline rooms, modern training facilities, a fully-fitted kitchen, medication management, improved security and staff car parking.
Tatura’s first ever ambulance station will be located at Casey Street. The Broadford ambulance branch will provide a new location for paramedics on Hamilton Street, next to the new CFA fire station.
Construction on both sites is targeted for completion mid-2019.
These new ambulance branches are being and delivered as part of the Ambulance Victoria Capital Upgrades Project, which is designed to rebuild and upgrade outdated ambulance stations across the state.
