The Hope Restart Centre on track to be finished by end of 2019
The Hope Restart Centre for alcohol and drug rehabilitation is on target to be completed by the end of 2019, with the likelihood that the first clients will be accepted in the opening half of 2020.
Nationals Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull, visited the site this week to view the progress of construction under local building company Brooker Builders. Bull commended the efforts of the community in helping to ensure the project.
"There is no doubt the government originally planned to build this facility elsewhere, that was made very clear to me at Parliament, but the community effort that just kept ticking boxes, made it impossible for the Minister to not strongly consider Bairnsdale - he told me that himself," said Mr Bull.
