Horsham Aquatic Centre upgrades revised to include accessibility ramp
Plans to upgrade the outdoor pool at Victoria’s Horsham Aquatic Centre have been expanded to include an accessibility ramp with State Wide Pools having been awarded the contract to complete the second stage of the outdoor pool revitalisation project.
The project also includes the installation of a wet deck to replace the existing concrete hob, installation of a reinforced pool liner and a new concourse.
Two new water filters were installed last November which marked the end of the project’s first stage.
An access ramp was not initially included in the design brief, however its inclusion was reconsidered during the tendering process.
Mayor Mark Radford said it was important that the pool was accessible to everyone, advising "we are determined to take this opportunity to transform Horsham Memorial Swimming Pool into a first-class facility so that everyone benefits.
“Physical fitness, injury recovery, recreation and competition swimming and general water-play are all benefits, for all ages, of having a community pool."
Council unanimously voted in favour of awarding the tender for the lump sum of $1,504,500 including the ramp.
Financial assistance for the project has come from Sport & Recreation Victoria.
Works are expected to start in April 2019 and be completed by December 2019.
