A new ambulance station is in progress in Colo Vale, which would provide more people in the Highlands with access to frontline emergency care.
Expressions of interest for 1800 square metres of land in the village closed on October 4, through the real estate agency Ray White Mittagong.
The station will be one of 30 built across the state as part of the NSW Ambulance Infrastructure Program over the next four years, a Health Infrastructure spokesperson said.
A total of $488.8 million has been dedicated to the project in the 2023-2024 state budget to make sure more areas had access to emergency medical care.
The initiative would also establish more working environments for paramedics and ensure there were more jobs in different areas.
"Health Infrastructure is working with NSW Ambulance and other key stakeholders across government to identify potential sites for new ambulance stations and prioritise delivery," the spokesperson said.
"New Ambulance Stations are located at places which optimise ambulance response performance and meet the future health needs of the community."
Ray White Mittagong sales agent Andy Kirk said about seven people were interested in offering their land for the future premises.
Those who expressed their interest could have a home on the land, or have it entirely vacant.
The real estate agency would then submit applications to be reviewed.
The Health Infrastructure website said a timeline for the new stations would be determined when locations were identified and planning progressed.
Moss Vale has also been selected for a new ambulance station.
