Construction kicks off on Tasmania’s new Burnie Ambulance Station

Construction of the new $10 million Burnie Ambulance Station has begun as part of the Tasmanian Government’s efforts to bolster Ambulance and paramedic services across the State.

Construction on the new station has now kicked off and once complete will have the capacity to house up to 20 vehicles. It will also provide dedicated staff meeting rooms and facilities, a larger garage and improved access for Ambulance Tasmania staff and visitors.

Vos Construction & Joinery will deliver the project, expected to be completed in February 2024.

The site’s Brickport Road location, adjacent to the North West Regional Hospital, will provide ambulances with safe and efficient access to the North West Regional Hospital and the Bass Highway.

The new Burnie Ambulance Station is one of six new rural and regional ambulance stations being built as part of the Government’s plan to boost Ambulance Tasmania’s services.

It follows the start of construction of the new Bridgewater and Beaconsfield Ambulance Station. Negotiations to build the new station at Queenstown are also progressing, with construction expected to start towards the end of October 2022.
