HRFE amends evacuation order for 1445 South Park Street near collapsed construction crane
Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency (HRFE) Chief Ken Stuebing has amended the evacuation order, permitting residents of 1445 South Park Street (the Trillium Condominium) near the collapsed construction crane, to re-occupy their homes.
Sidewalk fencing will be moved to allow pedestrian access to 1445 South Park Street. All other street and sidewalk closures remain in effect.
All other areas currently under an evacuation order are still prohibited from entry or re-occupation, including:
- 1459 South Park Street
- 1463 South Park Street; and
- 1477 South Park Street
The decision to allow re-occupation of 1445 South Park Street has been made in consultation with professional engineers working on the crane removal project. Further amendments to the evacuation orders will be made as soon as it is safe to do so.
The municipality and HRFE cannot estimate when re-occupation of other evacuated areas might be allowed. HRFE will remain in close contact with the project team and will allow residents to return to their properties as soon as possible.
