Demolition starts on Fire Station in The City

Social Share

Demolition of the Barbados Fire Service complex on Probyn Street, The City is underway.

Work men started around 8:30 a.m., excavated a wall and demolished a small building in the yard.

An official estimated that the main building would be taken down around noon. 

To accommodate the work, traffic on Probyn Street has been reduced to a single lane, but all surroundings roads, including Fairchild Street are unaffected. 

The removal of the station is the first stage of government’s plan to develop Golden Square Freedom Park.

The temporary market and the old National Insurance Scheme building are also scheduled to be demolished. (TG)
