The vacant space that once occupied a petrol station, bottle shop and rental shop in Morwell, will finally be replaced with a new project this year.
The construction of a new $11.6 million CFA fire station will begin without delay.
The new station will generate a significant boost to career and volunteer firefighters within the Latrobe Valley.
Firefighters currently attend around 850 incidents a year from the existing Morwell facility, which is a refurbished ambulance station.
Building work will start this month, and is expected to take around 12 months to complete.
