Works to upgrade access and carparking to the popular Crystal Cascades swimming hole are expected to start next week.
The Crystal Cascades improvement works include the regrading and shaping of embankments, new retaining walls, and the rehabilitation of road pavement and new kerbing on the Redlynch Intake Road carpark approaches.
Additional parallel parking along the roadway are part of the upgrades, along with a new bus parking area, CCTV camera surveillance and footpath connections through the carpark and irrigated garden beds.
Council will also undertake works to improve the drainage in the area.
The works are scheduled to start Monday 2 November and be completed by 20 December, weather permitting.
The facility will remain open during construction, however there may be temporary disruptions to carpark access and lane closures.
Motorists are reminded to please observe traffic controllers and signs advising the changes to traffic conditions. Council apologies for any inconvenience.
This project is funded by the Queensland Government’s Works for Queensland Program.
