WORK has begun on a new toilet block in Ashfield, flush with four unisex facilities.
The demolition and construction of the block, which was factored into the 2014-15 budget, is just one of the many changes to the suburb, according to Mayor John Gangell.
The new ablution block will also include storage space for local community groups and a multi-purpose covered area to one side of the facility.
‘After 18 long years the Ashfield community is about to receive a brand new $250,000 ablution block,’ Cr Gangell said.
‘This continues the positive work that the council has been undertaking in Ashfield over the past few years, which include underground power, renovation of the Ashfield Community Centre, district playground and working with the community to reinvigorate the Gary Blanch Reserve.’
As well as the four unisex toilets, the new facility will have one disabled toilet with a baby change facility.
It will also include storage space for local community groups and a multi-purpose covered area to one side of the facility.
‘I would like to thank the community for their patience with the overdue commencement of this project and I am sure that the wait will be well worth it with another great community enhancement to be delivered in Ashfield by the Council,’ Cr Gangell said.
During construction, temporary toilet facilities will be provided at the site with works expected to be completed in early 2015.
