New Ambulance stations for Wyong, Toukley

Wyong will receive a new Ambulance station and Toukley's will be rebuilt, with the state government committing cash for the two projects this morning.

The constructions have secured $9 million each, as the Coalition seeks to make good on a commitment made at the 2015 state election.

"We've put in a development application with Central Coast Council, and once that gets approved we'll be looking to get on with building and have it finished by the end of 2018," says Parliamentary Secretary for the Coast Scot MacDonald.

"The NSW Ambulance service will be the ones that will decide the number of vehicles that each station will hold. I think we'll hear more about that over the next few months."

It couldn't come at a better time as far Earlier this year, the Central Coast experienced 'bed block', where all of its ambulances were occupied - either en route to Gosford and Wyong Hospital or parked waiting to unload patients.
