Moranbah residents, businesses owners and visitors to the Town Square will be noticing the large structure rising above the security perimeter fence next to the Council building, starting to take a familiar shape.
A series of weather events left the last Town Square shade structure damaged, and Council decided to take it down and replace it with an engineered, cyclone rated solution.
While the area is closed to the public for the shade construction, it has allowed for other renewal works to be completed, including re-painting of adjacent walls and re-laying of the paved space.
Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker said the renewed space will be a great area for events and activities or enjoying a shady retreat.
“I am confident the revitalised Town Square will improve the user experience,” Mayor Baker said.
“Everyone will get a chance to experience the new shade structure soon, as it will be completed in time for the Anzac Day ceremony at the cenotaph.”
Mayor Baker said the mural being painted on the building façade behind the stage area will be of particular interest.
“The mural is of the Isaac River; the regions name-sake and the only river to dissect through all three of the former shires,” Mayor Baker said.
“Painted along the river will be significant aboriginal cultural events and places; essentially a visual map of our regions proud indigenous heritage.”
Isaac Regional Council would like to thank the community for their support and patience with the project.
