Rothwell Demolition Complete

Rothwell New Build Update - 02 Jun 14

The main building has now gone leaving the original tower and adjacent rooms which will be incorporated into the design of the new station.  These rooms will provide additional storage and drying areas for water rescue equipment.

Work is currently concentrated on digging the foundations including the preparation for the steel framework which will be in place by the end of the month.

The station will be completed in six separtate stages allowing operational activity to continue at the site.  In the final stage, the crews will occupy the new station and the demolition of the AFS garage and re-laying of the drill yard will take place.
