New Public Facilities for Tooma
Published on 12 March 2019
Tooma visitors and residents will soon have access to new public amenities with the installation of a new toilet block on the Southern side of Possum Point Road.
The prefabricated, corrugated iron facility is being built off site and will be installed at the Possum Point Road site in the first week of April.
Snowy Valleys Council’s Director Assets and Infrastructure Matt Christensen said there had been some delays to the original delivery timeline and Council has been working closing with the contractor to push for completion.
“We had originally planned for the toilets to be operational in early March, but unfortunately there has been some delays and so the completion date has been pushed out to early April,” Mr Christensen said.
The new amenities block will consist of two self-composting toilets, one accessible and one unisex, and stainless steel features.
“The new facility will cater for tourism traffic, families utilising the parkland and people attending the 3 bridges markets,” Mr Christensen said
Identified as a key community supported project for Tooma the project is funded with $80,000 from the NSW Government’s Major Projects Infrastructure Fund.
Further work on landscaping around the facility and the addition of a staircase for creek access will also be undertaken as part of the funding allocation.
