Tender awarded for new Dondingalong RFS station

Media release - 20 March 2019

A new, larger Rural Fire Service (RFS) station will be built at Dondingalong, incorporating three truck bays, office, training area and toilet/shower facilities.

The new station is required to meet the existing and future needs of the local brigade and to accommodate the larger fire trucks that RFS is rolling out across the State.

Kempsey Shire Council has awarded a tender to Osborne & Dowling Pty Ltd to construct the new facility at Kalateenee Recreational Reserve.

Construction is expected to begin in late March at the southern end of the reserve, minimising the impact on public recreational space.

Council is partnering with the RFS to deliver the station, which is expected to open in September, weather permitting.
