TOWRADGI Pool will be closed to the public over the winter months as Wollongong City Council starts work on Monday to repair cracks and ensure its long-term structural integrity.
The project focuses on rectifying cracks that have appeared in the main pool wall, toddlers’ pool and the first level of the concourse.
The works at Towradgi rock pool will also see the replacement of a number of concrete slabs, low retaining walls and stairs to the concourse area including associated works to the top of the adjacent pool walls.
The pool steps and handrails will also be replaced along with modification works to the existing block wall. Additionally, construction of a new external concrete wall to protect the existing pool valve in the south-east corner of the pool will also take place.
Works are anticipated to be completed by early October, pending suitable tide and weather conditions.
