A new co-located Ambulance and Fire & Rescue station is being built at Bardi Place, Aranda. Construction is due for completion by early June 2016.
The site for Aranda is just off Bindubi Street, near the intersection with Belconnen Way, opposite Canberra High School.
Bulk earthworks and the relocation of multiple services that were required before construction works could commence are now complete. The relocation of the Aranda Junior Baseball diamond is complete, in time for the new season.
Part of the station development includes a new car park south of the station. It will relocate the previous car park in Bardi Place that had to be temporarily closed to allow the new facility to be built.
The new car park will not be re-opened prior to the completion of construction of the new station, due to safety concerns for pedestrians and motorists from heavy truck and vehicle movements on and around the site.
The ESA apologises for this temporary inconvenience but has taken a safety first approach.
While construction is in progress, there is alternative parking available on Banaga Place, next to the Aranda Primary School.
