Wexford TD and Minister of State for Law Reform James Browne has welcomed news that a tender to construct a new fire station in New Ross has been approved.
The tender for the state-of-the-art fire station has been approved for €1,458,205.
“I’m delighted to learn that the tender for a new fire station in New Ross has been approved. I made several representations to the Housing Minister seeking the approval of the tender for this much-needed investment and I’m glad that these representations have culminated in the minister’s approval of the tender process.”
“A modern fire service is critical for any community and fire service personnel deserve the best facilities available.”
“Wexford County Council’s tender report was submitted to the Department of Housing in May 2020. I know Housing Minister Darragh O’Brien was keen to see the progress of this new-build to construction and now this latest step will see works get underway in the near future. I’m delighted that this new fire station will ensure that the New Ross fire service can base itself in a modern facility”,
Minister Browne concluded.
