New ambulance station, police station nearing completion

YANDINA'S first ambulance station is on track to be finished in late February and Maleny's new police station is just weeks away from completion.

Touring the sites this week Minister for Housing and Public Works, Mick de Brenni, said the Yandina building will have four vehicle bays, staff areas and a plant room, as well as on-site parking for staff and visitors.

The project will cost $2.2 million and has provided work for about 50 tradies, Mr de Brenni said.

The $2 million Maleny police station project will have the finishing touches completed in the next few weeks.

The new station on Macadamia St will replace the old station on Maple St, and will have interview rooms, a holding cell, a day room and officers' workstations, clerical support workstations, a reception area, public toilet, car parking spaces and sound acoustic fencing.
