Mitcham's brand new fire station opened 23 February, replacing the existing station in Lower Green West, where crews have been based for almost 100 years.

Built by Blue3, a Kier led consortium, the new state-of-the-art building provides crews with brand new facilities fit for the 21st century. Building work on the new fire station began in September 2013.

The construction project is part of a Private Finance Initiative (PFI) project which will see nine London fire stations coming to the end of their life, replaced by brand new buildings.

Station Manager Jeff Lisle said: "This brand new fire station is good news for the local community. The old Mitcham station has served residents for almost 100 years, but it no longer meets the demands of a modern fire and rescue service.

"The new station on London Road will provide us with facilities fit for the 21st century and reinforces our commitment to providing the best possible service to Londoners."
