Works to replace public toilets at Cohuna and Kerang have reached key milestones.

Foundation works at the site of Cohuna’s new public toilets at Apex Park are complete, with the construction of the cubical walls scheduled for the coming week.

Construction of handmade truss frames – similar to those that feature in the design for the nearby Gateway to Gannawarra Visitor Centre – is occurring.

“Hopefully this design feature will set a trend for future building works in Cohuna,” Mayor Lorraine Learmonth said.

The existing toilets at Apex Park remain in operation for public use and will be removed once the new toilet block is operational.

Meanwhile, demolition works at Kerang’s Scoresby Street public toilets have started.

The facility was closed to the public last month, with work to construct new facilities, outdoor seating and landscaping to begin later this month.

“Public toilets are available at Patchell Plaza, RSL Drive and Atkinson Park whilst the construction of the Scoresby Street toilets is occurring,” Mayor Learmonth said.

Both projects are part of Council’s $11.06 million Capital Works program, approved in the 2018/19 Budget.

“Council has invested significantly into public amenities over recent years and I look forward to the completion of these two new and improved toilet blocks at Kerang and Cohuna,” Mayor Learmonth said.
