WORK on the new Bibra Lake regional playground should start early next year after Menchetti Consolidated was named to build the $3.7 million project.

The playground will include interactive public art, play spaces, and is heavily influenced by Aboriginal heritage and the environmental significance of Bibra Lake.

The park will be located on Progress Drive and means the Cockburn Cruiser climbing equipment will have to be removed.

Engineering and works services director Charles Sullivan said the builder would start work soon.

“It is expected that once all the contract documentation has been signed, orders for the play equipment will be issued,” he said.

“The contractor will have possession of the site from early February 2016 to ensure the community has full access to Bibra Lake during the summer school holidays.”

The playground should be finished by September.
