New toilets on the way

A NEW public toilet block is being constructed in the Mareeba CBD, finally allowing the council to close the QCWA Women’s Rest Room site which has been targeted by vandals for years.

Mareeba Mayor Angela Toppin said construction of the new toilet facility in the Mareeba Post Office car park began last week, with expectations it will be completed by August when the existing toilet block will be closed.

“This new facility will consist of rendered block construction with an angled sloped roof and will house two unisex cubicles, with one cubicle being an accessible toilet,” she said.

Once the new toilets are open, council will seek a tenant for the existing QCWA structure.

“Council recognises the historical importance of the QCWA building and have made the building available for rent through council’s real estate agent,” Mayor Toppin said.

“Council has reached out to the Post Office tenants to advise about the upcoming project as it will affect pedestrian and car movements at the rear of the car park. Signs will be installed to advise of the changes.”
