Goonellabah Centre set to open in February

GOONELLABAH residents will have to paddle around in their wading pools until February, when the new Goonellabah Sports and Aquatic Centre is set to open.

Lismore City Council assets and support services manager, Scott Turner, said work at the $13 million sports facility was almost complete.

“Inside the building electricians, plumbers, plasterers, painters, you name it, they are all getting on with things,” Mr Turner said.

“Of significant interest is the sports floor, which is being laid in the court area. The entire floor of the building is concrete and in the sports areas, recycled rubber flooring is being put down and that is then coated with the final thin surface coating.

“The structure of the pool is all finished and they are finishing installing all the pumps and filters.”

“Council gets the keys to the building at the end of January, then we will have some fitting out of our own to do.”
