EXCLUSIVE: And here is your first look at new Neighbours exteriors which will bring additional location sets to Erinsborough.
FremantleMedia is adding the finishing touches to a series of new sets that will be introduced mid-2010, built on the famous ‘Lassiters’ exterior at Nunawading.
TV Tonight visited the building site which will comprise permanent new sets including a Police Station, University Campus locations, Cafe and upgraded Erinsborough News and Lassiters Hotel.
Significantly, they are not just facade shells, but include working interiors which will allow OB camera crews to shoot indoors and give scenes more visual authenticity.
The new Erinsborough Police Station, manned by ‘Metropolitan Police’ is the largest of the new exteriors, with several interior rooms and office spaces.
Other areas will become University Campus common spaces. A rooftop cafe has been added.
The nearby lake was drained over Christmas to enable the construction of a pathway.
A Used Car lot has been added near the local garage.
And there is another permanent fixture yet to be unveiled.
Neighbours has also revamped its interior Hospital set, with a new-look Reception area.
