Major Projects Update for June 2022

Pontoon-Jetty-River Boat

This project is progressing well with the installation of the pontoon and jetty completed and the walkway to be installed as part of the River Walk project. 

Council has received quotations for the supply of a suitable boat to carry 12 passengers.   Details have been considered by the Steering Committee and a preferred supplier selected    The Project Manager will now finalise options available to ensure the boat meets Council’s requirements. Building of the boat will take some months to complete.


Hot Springs & River Walk

Ergon Energy have removed power poles from the site and electrical wires have been relocated.

New State Builders are on site, earthworks and foundations for the facility building have commenced with piling to start shortly and expected to take about three to four weeks.

Two commercial operators have been shortlisted, legal contracts have been drafted and the operators will be requested to submit their final business plans by early August.

The Steering Committee for both these projects meets regularly and now that work is underway it is Council’s intention to provide monthly updates on progress.
