Work to build a new Deniliquin Police Station has finally begun.

After years of planning and discussions with state politicians, the four police houses next to the station have been demolished in preparation for construction.

Deniliquin police acting inspector Ben Grainger said the demolition was the first stage of the $2.305 million project.

Construction of the facility is expected to begin next year.

‘‘The second stage will be demolishing the training room and garage, which were between the houses that were knocked down,’’ Mr Grainger said.

‘‘The houses on the river side had been there for a long time. It took about two weeks to demolish the houses.

‘‘It’s great to see the works started. It’s finally happening; it gives people confidence that the project will happen.

‘‘I think the new station will be great for the entire community and its surrounding areas.’’‘


Mr Grainger said while plans for the new station were still being finalised, it’s expected all police departments will be housed together, unlike the current multiple lay-out building at the Hardinge St precinct.

The new facility is expected to be completed and operational in 2017.

‘‘Eventually the demountable at the current site will be removed,’’ Mr Grainger said.

‘‘The main station I believe will be demolished.

‘‘The old quarters on the corner facing Charlotte St are heritage listed and will remain where they are.’’

The new station was originally promised ahead of the 2007 state election.
