Lakes project well on track
A MAJOR project to revitalise the Bicentennial Lakes area in Mareeba is well underway.
The project is aimed at breathing life back into the area and surrounds and will completely revitalise the Lakes, starting in the southern section between Rankin Street and Keeble Street.
In the southern section, the weirs have been removed, with the silt taken away after the lakes were drained and a rock lining installed to reshape into a gully.
As part of the project, a new playground and pump track will be established, with the contract for the facility awarded and construction works commencing in November last year.
Playground equipment including a flying fox, hill slides, rope climb net and swing are currently being manufactured.
The construction of the new toilet facility is also underway.
