MRC projects on track

Murray River Council has this week received a report on the healthy status of its major projects schedule.

Presented as part of its ordinary meeting agenda on Tuesday, the report details the completion of twenty out of the thirty-eight major externally funded infrastructure projects, with the others remaining on track.

Two of the high-profile projects wrapping up are the multi-purpose pavilions in both Moama and Barham, standing as landmark recreation spaces in both communities.

Moama Recreation Reserve’s newest pavilion will soon become Moama’s largest and most versatile indoor multi-purpose space.

Stage one building works are wrapping up with Stage 2, the grand stand seating, due for completion in the coming months.

Construction of Barham’s new $2 million facility has been finalised with works to complement the new building now also commencing, including new footpaths, park furniture, children's playground, car parking and landscaping at the site.

“Some positive news as we work under COVID-19 restrictions is that our projects are still making good progress with minimal impact on the delivery schedule,” Murray River Council Mayor, Cr Chris Bilkey said.

“It’s exciting to see the progress that is being made and, like plenty of other Murray River Council residents, I can’t wait for the remaining projects to be completed and for locals to make use of the facilities.”
