How much the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) has paid for a Hume Highway site at Craigieburn on which it will construct a $109 million training facility. The property, which previously operated as the Apollo Caravan Park at 284-290 Hume Highway, is about 30 kilometres north of Melbourne CBD and comprises 18.6 hectares of relatively flat land, making it ideal for the MFB’s purposes. Savills Australia’s industrial director Michael Green was retained by MFB to find a suitable site and says the proposed new facility willcomplement the MFB’s existing complex at Burnley. He says construction is due to start soon with the facility operational in 2014.

The remaining properties in the portfolio range in size from 35 hectares to 339 hectares and are in the Tully and Ingham region.
