New €1.45m Fire Station for New Ross

By Dan Walsh


It may be the worst kept secret in New Ross, but plans for a new fire station at Hewittsland, opposite Tesco, has been given a lifeline with a €1.45 million tender which means the new building will proceed and it’s anticipated it will be operational next summer.

It will be a state of the art three-bay fire station with 14 parking spaces, a training yard, tower, lecture room and offices. The tender has been allocated to local construction company Kevin Thorpe Ltd, Adamstown.

The tender is included in the Capital Budget and was signed off by Darragh O’Brien TD, Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, yesterday (Wednesday).
