Council capital works delivery

Park Road Boardwalk

Noosa Council has boasted over its delivery of 96 per cent of Capital Works projects totalling nearly $23 million during the last financial year.

Mayor Tony Wellington said the impressive output was testament to the working relationship between staff and local contractors.

“The result is about as good as one could get,” Mayor Tony Wellington said.

“A goal of 100 per cent is unrealistic for any council, because there are always uncontrollable factors such as wet weather and tender responses.”

Projects included the upgrade to the Castaways Beach carpark and bus stop, the replacement of two hinterland bridges, completion of the Park Road boardwalk as well as the refurbishment of the Noosaville Library, plus park improvements at Pomona and Cooran.

Council has adopted a $28.4 million Capital Works budget for the 2019-2020.

“Limiting our carryover projects into the next year places us in a good position to tackle the projects listed in this year’s Capital Works schedule,” Cr Wellington said.

Work is about to start on the Noosa North Shore Beach Campground upgrade, refurbishment of the Peregian Beach toilet block and a new shade house at the Noosa Botanic Gardens.
