Construction of Abbotsford's newest fire hall will be completed on time and on budget, according to Fire Chief Don Beer.

Scheduled to be open at the end of March 2012, the $3.3-million hall is currently two weeks behind schedule.

Despite the delay, Beer told city council on Monday the project is going well and fire representatives were "working with the contractor to stay on target."

PAX Construction is currently working on the inner support shear walls and the truck bay wall structures. Steel work should begin in the next few weeks.

The hall is being constructed to help local fire rescue service better serve the area of west Abbotsford. The new location is expected to cut down response time to emergencies in the area.
