A TENDER from Berkeley company, Deane Construction will build a new lifeguard tower and facility at Coledale Beach.
The $197,000 tender will see the new lifeguard tower built for Wollongong City Council on the site of the old boat shed.
Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said the lifeguard tower will help with the safe use of Coledale Beach.
“This is an important step in the programmed upgrade of lifeguard facilities at our patrolled beaches,” he said.
Work on the lifeguard tower is expected to begin before the end of the financial year.
The lifeguard tower will ensure there are good sight lines and access to bathing areas on the beach and is a key facility to support beach patrols.
