$1.3m ambo station for Biggenden

WORK on a $1.3 million ambulance station at Biggenden will start next month.

Emergency Services Minister Neil Roberts has announced the contract for the job has been awarded to J M Kelly, with building due for completion in June 2012.

“The government made the decision to replace the current station as it doesn't support the needs of a modern ambulance service,” Mr Roberts said.

The replacement station will be at the Queensland Health hospital site on Alice Street.

When building is finished, it will operate as a day-shift station with emergency availability after hours.

“It is expected to house two ambulances and two ambulance officers and will feature a two-bay plant room, relief quarters, office accommodation, staff amenities and utility areas,” Mr Roberts said.

“The new station will provide the Queensland Ambulance Service with a world-class facility to meet the growing demand for services as well as achieve the long term QAS service delivery requirements in the area.”

The project will create 10 full-time jobs during the construction phase.
