Mount Morgan Pool Update
Published on 12 July 2023
Council is pleased to announce that the Mount Morgan pool onsite works will be commencing this week.
Rockhampton Region Mayor Tony Williams said he knows the community is eager to see the pool construction commence.
“Our contractor, Taylor Builders Pty Ltd, will be starting on site this week with demolition scheduled to occur later in the week,” Mayor Williams said.
“After the demolition has happened, we’ll quickly move onto the construction phase with the pool on track to open and be ready for swimming in early 2024.”
Divisional Councillor Cherie Rutherford and Councillor for Parks, Sport and Public Spaces said there has been plenty happening behind the scenes in the lead up to the demolition and construction.
“Although people may not be able to see the progress physically at the pool site up until now, I can assure the community that plenty of offsite works have been happening in the lead up to the demolition and construction of the new pool,” Cr Rutherford said.
“Taylor Builders Pty Ltd has been working with six specialised consultants, ranging from electrical consultants to civil works consultants as well as working with Ergon Energy in preparation for the works.
“As I’m sure people can appreciate, designing and constructing a commercial swimming pool is a very complex process with many moving parts involved.
“We can’t wait for the community to enjoy this fantastic new facility when it opens next year.”
The Mount Morgan pool is funded by the Queensland Government’s Resources Community Infrastructure Fund and Rockhampton Regional Council.
