AFTER four months Woonona ocean baths will reopen tomorrow following a $190,000 upgrade by Wollongong City Council, which has seen the replacement of the twin intake lines and repainting and repairs of the pool shell.
Council’s director of infrastructure and works Peter Kofod said the work has seen new intake lines, intake pipes, strainer baskets, minor repairs to the external wall and concourse, and repainting of the pool shell.
“Council has worked through difficult tides and weather conditions to ensure this community asset remains a wonderful amenity for local swimmers and visitors,” Mr Kofod said.
“Council has replaced two ageing intake valves and strainer baskets for the pool, and we have given the pool a new paint job. We are glad to open this one just prior to Spring and the 2012 swimming season.”
Council began work in April this year with work costing $190,000.
