$5.4m pool upgrade kicks off

Moreton Bay Regional Council has commenced construction on the major $5.4 million Caboolture Regional Aquatic Centre (CRALC) upgrade at Burpengary.

Council said contractors and construction crews were joined by Division 2 Councillor Peter Flannery on 22 June to mark the official start. The multimillion-dollar project will see a number of enhancements including replacement of pool plant infrastructure, maintenance work to the building structure and pool shells, and a fresh lick of paint for the popular swimming venue.

“This centre opened more than 17 years ago, providing a great space for so many families and individuals to carry out their swimming activities,” Flannery said.

“It is now time for the centre to receive plenty of TLC to ensure that it can continue to support the needs of our growing community for many years to come.

“This will mark the first major refurbishment of swimming facilities at CRALC,” he said.

The pools will be closed during construction to allow crews to install new equipment and undertake maintenance to the 25 m and 50 m pool shells, as well as the Leisure pool. The centre’s gym, cafe, creche, tennis courts and consulting rooms will remain open.
