Multi-million dollar upgrades planned for Isaac Region
A list of upgrades across the Isaac region has been submitted for funding.
INFRASTRUCTURE upgrades to the Isaac region could soon become a reality, with council nominating a list of projects for a funding submission to the Works for Queensland (W4Q) program.
Almost $1.6 million dollars has been made available to Isaac Regional Council (IRC) under the fund.
Council moved and carried a motion to submit a list of projects for funding approval under the scheme.
Projects nominated for funding include a $1.2 million upgrade to the Greg Cruickshank Aquatic Centre (GCAC) Water Park and several projects under the Combined Community Facilities functionality and accessibility project, worth almost $400,000.
According to a report by council, the GCAC water park has “reached the end of its useful life”.
“Various compliance issues have forced the closure of the asset.
“This project will deliver a new asset to replace the existing water park.”
The projects included in the submission form part of IRC’s plans for wider infrastructure renewals around the region, exceeding $3 million.
Replacement of the GCAC is considered high priority among the proposed projects.
Further high priority projects include refurbishment to the Clermont and Dysart Civic Centres, the Dysart Civic Centre Carpark and resealing of the pavement at the Clermont Aerodrome.
