Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

IT’S been more than 18 months since ex-trop­i­cal Cy­clone Tracey wreaked havoc across the Tweed Shire and the ex­ten­sive flood damage is still ev­i­dent in some parts of the re­gion.

The Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre at Budd Park in Mur­willum­bah re­mains closed af­ter flood­wa­ter dam­aged the build­ing on the banks of the Tweed River.

Tweed Shire Coun­cil con­firmed a ten­der has gone out to re­pair the flood damage and re­fur­bish the Mur­willum­bah Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre.

The works are ex­pected to be com­pleted in April 2019.

The ten­der is be­ing eval­u­ated and will go to the Novem­ber 15 coun­cil meet­ing for ap­proval.

The coun­cil con­tract for tourism pro­mo­tion changed hands last week, when Tweed Tourism Com­pany, op­er­ated by DR Tourism, be­gan its four-year con­tract af­ter beat­ing out pre­vi­ous op­er­a­tors Des­ti­na­tion Tweed.

Tweed Tourism Com­pany has in­di­cated it would con­tinue us­ing all the vis­i­tor in­for­ma­tion cen­tres in the shire in an ef­fort to make the tran­si­tion seam­less.
