Asbestos concerns have delayed the demolition of the former Ulladulla Marine Rescue base, which was severely damaged in fire two months ago.
Base commander Ken Lambert said a series of tests detected trace amounts of asbestos which resulted in the postponement of a bulldozer intended to demolish the building.
Additional tests have been clear which has subsequently necessitated further testing to verify the recent results and permit the demolition of the building.
Lambert said everything that still held value, had since been removed from the site. The discovery of asbestos comes following a host of asbestos related incidents going into Asbestos Month in November.
