New GRN site goes live on the NSW Central Coast

The NSW Telco Authority continues to expand the government radio network (GRN), with a new site activated at Wyong Creek on the NSW Central Coast.

The GRN is the narrowband public safety radio network used by the state’s emergency services and other government agencies.

“Radio sites, including this new site in Wyong Creek, provide emergency services organisations with a single, integrated network on which to communicate,” said NSW Telco Authority Managing Director Kylie De Courteney.

“By expanding the footprint of this critical infrastructure, we are ensuring that frontline responders have an enhanced and more reliable radio network to help keep people and places safe.”

The NSW Government is investing hundreds of millions of dollars in communications infrastructure as part of its Critical Communications Enhancement Program. You can read an update on that program here.

The new radio site in Wyong Creek follows a recent $217 million boost for the Telco Authority to continue expanding the footprint of the GRN across NSW.
