New carparks are being created at the Multiplex and Bundaberg Superpark to provide more than 300 additional sealed parking spaces.
The combined value of the projects is approximately $884,000 with funds provided from the State Government's Works For Queensland program and Bundaberg Regional Council.
Roads and drainage portfolio spokesman Cr Bill Trevor said work was nearing completion at Bundaberg Superpark where more than 200 additional parking spaces would service the netball and athletics facilities.
“Sealing of the Superpark car parks will be undertaken on Monday with line marking to follow,” he said.
“It’s important to have dedicated parking spaces at these venues given the popularity of both sports. It’s just another means by which we can value-add to our local sporting infrastructure.
“The project at the Superpark involves constructing two carparks and installing bollards and additional lighting.”
Cr Trevor said work had only just begin on the overflow carpark adjacent to the Bundaberg Multiplex.
“Construction time, weather permitting, is expected to be about four weeks with close to 110 parks being designed,” he said.
“The use of the Multiplex, both through the PCYC programs and the entertainment and convention centre, is attracting increased patronage and the provision of sealed all-weather parking is yet another plus for this exceptional community facility.”
Cr Trevor said the carpark is located near the site of a former golf driving range.
“Workers levelling the site have found numerous old golf balls – some buried to 20 centimetres and obviously very old.”
