Local construction companies are being called to tender for the opportunity to construct a new ambulance station on the Gold Coast.

Minister for Housing and Public Works Mick de Brenni said that the Palaszczuk Government was determined to make sure locals were involved in the work.

“We expect this project will support up to 50 local workers to demolish and construct a new ambulance station on the existing site, including a basement carpark for emergency response vehicles.” Mr. de Brenni said.

“We know the Gold Coast’s population is set to increase by more than 300,000 over the next 20 years. It’s important we plan for that growth, and ensure we have in place frontline services and facilities to meet that demand.”

“Infrastructure like this is not just about the end product, it’s also about providing jobs through the construction process.”

“I strongly encourage companies to employ Gold Coast workers wherever possible.” Mr. de Brenni said.

Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Cameron Dick said the project forms part of the Queensland Ambulance Service’s broader program of work.

“The new station will support our paramedics to continue to provide a first-class emergency response to the local community.” Mr. Dick said.
