Work is progressing well at the new Cookbundoon Amenities Building, despite some rain delays over the past two weeks. The roof will be going on this week, with doors also being installed to allow the building to reach lock-up.
The project will provide improved change rooms, bathrooms and general facilities for soccer players in the region, with a strong focus on female amenities.
$572,884 is allocated to the project through the Federal Government Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, with Council also contributing $500,000. Local company ARW Multigroup were the successful tenderer for the project and are undertaking the build.
“It’s fantastic to see so much progress out at the Cookbundoon Sporting Grounds, considering it was only late July last year that we were able to obtain this funding” said Mayor Bob Kirk.
“Soccer is one of, if not the biggest, participation sports in our region, and this facility will provide vastly improved change rooms, bathrooms and canteen for the sport in Goulburn.”
Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor said it’s terrific to see the project coming together and nearing completion.
“The LRCI Program was all about getting projects underway that would support jobs and local businesses as soon as possible to strengthen our economy,” Mr Taylor said.
“I’m looking forward to getting out to Cookbundoon to see local sporting groups making use of the brand new facilities.”
Design of the canteen has been finalised after a meeting with the STFA, and work will commence soon on fit out of the entire building once lock-up is achieved. At this stage the project is still on track for completion by the end of the financial year.
