Gin Gin upgrades
A TOTAL of $1.3 million has been allocated to a number of projects in Gin Gin.
Bundaberg Regional Council announced it would provide $900,000 for an upgrade to the Gin Gin Water Treatment Plant and $200,000 for an upgrade to the Gin Gin Recreation Reserve, including the development of the skate park and other improvements.
Councillor Wayne Honor said he was delighted with the funding announcements.
“We have a very good mix of projects on track for Gin Gin and surrounding areas over the coming 12 months, but I am particularly delighted with the upgrade to the water treatment plant,” he said.
The Gin Gin pool will have the old amenities block removed and a new one built at a cost of $100,000.
Another $40,000 has been allocated to the Gin Gin Library for the installation of additional shelving.
“A project that has been very important to me and to the community is the Wattawa Walkway and the Tirroan Bikeway,” Cr Honor said.
“I am delighted council has announced funding of $60,000 to extend the bikeway.”
