Tamworth is getting a new ambulance station under the NSW Nationals in the state government’s $232 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration program.
The state-of-the art station will replace the existing Marius Street facility, providing the latest equipment to support our paramedics as they continue to deliver top quality care to local communities.
The city’s second station, in Tamworth South, will remain operational, and when the new station is complete, both will service local communities.
NSW Nationals Member for Tamworth, Kevin Anderson, said the new ambulance station will be a fantastic asset, helping ensure north-west communities receive the most timely emergency care now and into the future.
“I am pleased to have been able to work with local paramedics to deliver on my commitment for a new ambulance station in the city,” Mr Anderson said.
“The Tamworth site will be selected using tried and tested international software which maps Triple Zero (000) calls so the community can feel confident the new station will operate from the most optimal location.”
The Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration program is the largest investment in regional NSW Ambulance’s 125-year history, with 24 new or upgraded ambulance stations already delivered or underway.
In 2020-21, the NSW Nationals in the state government are investing more than $1 billion in services and capital works for NSW Ambulance.
