TAFE buildings to be demolished

AFTER years of sitting empty and attracting squatters, the old TAFE buildings in Maryborough are set to come crashing down.

The double-storey brick buildings on the corner of Sussex and Ferry streets are known as one of Maryborough’s homeless hotspots.

They have been vacant since Maryborough’s new TAFE campus was built at Maryborough West several years ago.

Residents who are keen to see the empty buildings gone don’t have much longer to wait.

Paterson Demolition and Recycling, a Brisbane-based company, is set to demolish the site before the start of the 2010 school year.

The company is qualified to demolish buildings up to two storeys in height, as well as remove asbestos products.

Workplace Health and Safety regulations will be complied with during the demolition process to ensure the safety of demolition workers and the general public.
