New Rural Fire Brigade Station for Freemans Reach

Hawkesbury City Council would like to advise that the construction phase of the new Rural Fire Brigade Station for Freemans Reach has commenced this week.

The initial construction program submitted has an expected completion date of the end of March 2021.

The Mayor of Hawkesbury Councillor Barry Calvert congratulated Freemans Reach Rural Fire Brigade on receiving an NSW State Government grant of $1,334,023 towards building the new station under the Rural Fire Fighting Fund.

“It’s not easy getting grants, so I commend the effort that Freemans Reach Rural Fire Brigade has put into making their grant submission and for their success in being a successful applicant,” Mayor Calvert said.

“Anything to do with helping the Hawkesbury Rural Fire Service and their Brigades, so that they can help our local community in times of need, should be a priority.

“I know everyone involved is very excited to see this project get off the ground and I look forward to updating you all on the progress along the way,” Mayor Calvert said.

During construction of the new building, the public amenities and tennis courts will still be accessible to the general public. There will be reduced car parking directly adjacent the building site.
