The toilet block at Home Hill’s Lions Park will be closed for a month from Monday, February 22, to enable a much-needed refurbishment to take place.
Burdekin Shire Council Operations Manager Wayne Saldumbide said the $38,000 upgrade would include replacing hardware in the aging facility.
“This upgrade has come as a result of a customer request to Council that the facility be upgraded,” he said.
“Its position at the northern end of Home Hill and opposite the Home Hill Lions Diorama means tourists use the facility and the current building is in dire need of an upgrade.
“The works, which includes painting, new tiles, sealing of the ceiling area, new toilet pedestals, basins and other hardware, will commence on Monday, February 22 and will be completed in about a month’s time.
“This may sound like quite a long time, but new concrete will be laid and requires a week to cure properly before tiles can be laid.”
Public amenity blocks available for the public to use during the closure of the Lions Park facility can be found at E W Ford Park, Home Hill Comfort Stop and Arch Dunn Memorial Park.
The Ayr Building Company will complete the refurbishment.
