Refurbishment work on the Home Hill Comfort Stop steps up a notch next week.
Burdekin Shire Council Operations Manager Wayne Saldumbide said a builder had been awarded the contract to modify the access to the disabled facilities and the work would begin on Tuesday, April 2.
“This work will give carers and their partner/patient direct access to the disabled facilities, instead of having to pass through the main toilet facilities,” he said.
“Both male and female disabled facilities will be modified in this way and will effectively become self-contained.”
Mr Saldumbide said the $160,000 upgrade of the Comfort Stop would also include the installation of electronic shower timers, installation of energy efficient lighting and the facility would be repainted.
“There will be some access restrictions for those wanting to use the facility during the works, which is unavoidable due to privacy issues and workplace health and safety,” he said.
“We anticipate the works will be completed by the end of April and appreciate patrons’ patience during the construction period.”
