PROJECT UPDATES

I thought that I’d provide some updates on a few local projects.

TURTLE PLAYGROUND
A section of the Turtle Playground has been temporarily closed off to enable maintenance work to be carried out on the front right flipper of the structure. The Parks & Gardens crew will have it re-opened as soon as possible.

The playground will also be closed off completely for a few days in the first week of March to enable the soft-fall ground surface to be replaced. Weather permitting, the work should take from the 5th to the 14th. The work will coincide with the laying of soft-fall at the Schuhkraft Exercise Hub at Nielson Park (see below).

FORESHORE CAR PARKING SPACES
Work commenced today on the construction of 38 sealed car parking spaces on the Bargara foreshore north of Clarke Street. A Media Release will be issued tomorrow however in brief, there will 32 angled, three parralel and four disabled spaces. A plan of the works can be viewed here.

WAR MEMORIAL
Ground preparation work is progressing at the site of the new war memorial adjacent to the Esplanade & Bauer Street intersection. A concrete base is scheduled to be poured on Wednesday and will later be covered with composite decking.

SCHUHKRAFT EXERCISE HUB
The new exercise hub is well underway with some static exercise stations already in place, irrigation being installed, turf being laid and soft-fall scheduled to be laid in the first week of March. This great initiative of Medicare Local has been supported by a $20,000 contribution by the Bargara Progress Association with an Open Day to be held between 8.00am & 11.00am on Saturday 8th March. 

TURTLE TRAIL – RIFLE RANGE CREEK
The completed bridge over Rifle Range Creek remains closed as Council crews form up to lay the new concrete footpath extending from the southern side of the creek toward Turtle Cove.

LOCAL ROADWORKS
Roadworks are well underway across the region and never more so than the coastal strip. There are currently numerous projects underway resulting in some traffic delays. Woongarra Scenic Drive and Logan Road at Innes Park North are both undergoing significant upgrades whilst many other are receiving new surfaces, stabilisation and replacement of deformed lay-back gutters.

Please be patient with the Traffic Controllers as they’re trying to keep vehicles moving as quickly as possible.
