A number of public amenities across Noosa will get a facelift thanks to a $220,000 joint initiative between Noosa Council and the Queensland Government.
The project, which begins this month, will include various upgrades to toilet blocks including new floor tiles, painting, rendering and maintenance to toilet cubicles.
Facilities Coordinator Chris Steel said the upgrades will freshen up some of the more dated public amenities around the shire.
“It’s a great initiative for council to be given this opportunity from the State Government and we’re putting the funds to good use by going in and doing some cosmetic work to enhance the aesthetics of various public toilet blocks around Noosa.
The project includes the following public amenities:
- Boreen Point toilets on Boreen Parade
- RSL Memorial Park toilets in Tewantin
- Munna Point toilets on Gympie Terrace
- Ed Web Park at Sunshine Beach
- Tingira Crescent public amenities at Sunrise Beach
- Seaview Terrace amenities at Sunshine Beach
The works will collectively take a few months to complete with some of the different amenity blocks being closed to the public for up to a week at a time. Temporary toilets will be available to the public while the repairs are underway.
“We’re hoping to have these all completed by the Christmas holidays in time for the busy period. So long as there aren’t too many delays with material supplies but that doesn’t seem to be an issue at the moment so we’re in a good position to stay on schedule.
“We are using local contractors to get the work completed and it’s great to fix these public amenities up, while putting money back into the local economy.”
