An elected Liberal Nationals Government will commit $7.1 million towards construction of a new CFA and Ambulance Station in Armstrong Creek.
The precinct will house a brand new CFA station and ambulance branch.
Armstrong Creek is one of the fastest growing suburbs in Victoria, with an expected 22,000 residential homes in the local area requiring additional emergency services for the future.
The precinct will be built on the land already allocated at the corner of Surf Coast Hwy and Boundary Road Armstrong Creek.
This new site will service the needs for Southern Geelong and the Armstrong Creek growth area.
“I am extremely pleased to join Matthew Guy today and announce that if elected we will build Armstrong Creek a new CFA and Ambulance station” said Andrew Katos MP.
“When I’m out in the community I continually hear from Armstrong Creek residents that they need this new precinct and today I can say a Liberal Government will deliver it.”
While Daniel Andrews wages his war with the CFA, the Liberal Nationals are committed to backing our hardworking emergency services workers and are committed to providing the facilities and tools they need to keep Victorians safe.
The need for this new station was highlighted following the tragic death of a women from fire in Armstrong Creek on Boxing Day 2017. Since then the community has been calling for improved facilities to help keep residents safe.
