Construction is set to commence on the new Glenorchy ambulance station, which has been designed to house an increased paramedic workforce and meet the anticipated future needs of the local community.

Construction company Hansen Yuncken has been awarded the $12.66 million contract to build the new facilities, which will include dedicated staff meeting rooms, a larger garage and improved access for Ambulance Tasmania staff and visitors.

Acting Health Minister Michael Ferguson said it was one of eight new stations the government planned to deliver as it endeavoured to boost ambulance services and resources across the state.

“We are building the infrastructure needed to support our investments in ambulance and paramedic services so that more Tasmanians can get the care they need,” he said.

“The new contemporary station will further support the delivery of life-saving services to Hobart’s northern suburbs and beyond for decades to come.”

A new ambulance station opened in Bridgewater earlier this year. Stations are under construction at Beaconsfield and Queenstown while planning continues for stations at Longford, Oatlands and Bicheno.

Construction on the Glenorchy ambulance station is expected to be completed by August 2024.
