A toilet block in the centre of Alexandra Park will be demolished soon to make way for upgraded amenities in the popular area.
The project is part of Bundaberg Regional Council's Parks and Open Space Strategy 2019-2026 to meet the required standards for accessibility.
Parks and Gardens portfolio spokesperson Cr Wayne Honor said the demolition process, which would begin from Monday, 29 March, would take a few days and would follow with the construction of two new toilet blocks.
“The new toilet facilities will be located adjacent to the existing toilet facility, in the centre of the park,” he said.
“The first toilet block will include a unisex accessible toilet and unisex ambulant toilet.
“The second will include a baby change table.”
Cr Honor said demolition would begin on Monday and would take two days to complete.
“We expect the new toilet block construction to begin soon thereafter, which will then be open to the public by the end of the month,” he said.
Alexandra Park and the adjoining zoo will still be accessible to visitors during this time.
“This upgrade will be a great addition to a very popular area, which sees many locals and visitors alike enjoying the natural space every year,” Cr Honor said.
Council staff have planned to allow for toilets to always be available during each part of the construction phase.
The toilet upgrade is a joint initiative of Bundaberg Regional Council and the Queensland Government through the COVID Works for Queensland project.
