New ambulance branches on the way for Clyde North, Epping, Oak Park and Melton

We're boosting ambulance resources with builders appointed for branches in Clyde North, Epping and Oak Park and construction underway in Melton.

This means paramedics will have the facilities and support they need to quickly respond to local emergencies.

Clyde North

Bowden Corporation has been appointed to construct the new Clyde North ambulance branch.

The location of the new branch on Matterhorn Drive allows ease of access to main roads and major sites including schools, shopping precincts and community facilities.

The new branch will include:

  • a four-bay ambulance garage
  • four rest and recline areas
  • training facilities
  • a fully equipped kitchen
  • improved security and car parking.

The new Clyde North Ambulance Branch is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Epping

Bowden Corporation has also been appointed to construct the new Epping ambulance branch.

The project will involve knocking down and rebuilding the existing ambulance branch on McDonald’s Road to provide new, modern amenities.

The new branch will include:

  • a five-bay ambulance garage
  • six rest and recline areas
  • training facilities
  • a fully equipped kitchen
  • improved security and car parking.

Construction is expected to get underway shortly - once the hardworking paramedics from Epping are relocated to their temporary accommodation.

  • six rest and recline areas
  • training facilities
  • a fully equipped kitchen
  • improved security and car parking.

The upgraded Oak Park ambulance branch is on-track to be completed in late 2022.
