THE race towards completion of the new $25 million Inverell Aquatic Centre is well and truly underway, with Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall taking the opportunity to inspect construction progress this week.

Mr Marshall toured the Aquatic Centre site on Tuesday, alongside Inverell Shire Council staff, to view firsthand one of the first concrete pours for the main Olympic pool’s foundations.

“This massive project will see a new Inverell Aquatic Centre rise from the ground crowned the premier competitive swimming facility in country NSW,” Mr Marshall said.

“It will provide fun and recreation for future generations of locals and visitors, whatever their age and swimming ability.

“Demolition of the old structure and earth works were completed late last year, as well as excavation and screw piling for the main Olympic pool.

“Structural slabs began being poured this week, which brings the project one-step closer to the finish line.”

Mr Marshall said Inverell Shire Council and builder Hines Constructions were doing a fantastic job renewing the existing 60-year-old pool facilities, so they met the requirements of modern-day competition.

“The new facility will include a main 8-lane 50 metre outdoor/indoor pool, a 20-metre by 10-metre warm water pool with a moveable floor and an indoor splash park with an associated toddlers pool,” he said.

“The facilities will be state-of-the-art and ensure ease of use for all ranges of mobility.

“This project will ensure Inverell Aquatic Centre can continue delivering a high-quality training and competition venue for another 50 years.”

Mr Marshall said $6.1 million in funding had been provide for the project by the previous State Government.

The total project is valued at $24.98 million and scheduled for completion in December this year.
