Up, up and away for Broughton helipad

HELICOPTERS will soon be able to lift-off from the new Port Broughton District Hospital helipad.

Port Broughton District Health Advisory Council presiding member Dr Alison Edwards said the helipad should be reviewed and signed-off this week so it can be used the next time a retrieval is needed.

“We will be working with Barunga West Council on landscaping and fencing over the next few months, and the adjacent powerlines will be undergrounded early next year to enable night-time use during north/south wind conditions,” Dr Edwards said.
