New Ambulance and Fire & Rescue station for West Belconnen: One year on.
The new Ambulance and Fire and Rescue Station in Charnwood, West Belconnen was completed in October 2013, and was officially opened on 18 October 2013 by the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Simon Corbell MLA. Paramedics and firefighters are proud to serve the community from their new co-located station in West Belconnen. Construction of the new station by Manteena Pty Ltd included a roundabout located at the intersection of Lhotsky Street and Charnwood Place (the main entry/exit for the Charnwood shops). The new roundabout has greatly improved traffic flow in that area, and has been well received by local residents and businesses.
