Essential Roof Works
Good news, our roof works are almost complete! Our facilities are operating as normal.
From 1 March, contractors have been onsite completing works on the vapor barrier/guttering of the HALC. This has not impacted on operations.
A crane was delivered on Sunday 11 April at the HALC for the commencement of the full roof works. The roof sheet replacement works are essential to reduce the condensation levels in the pool hall. Due to the nature and location of these works, it’s too weather dependent to provide an exact completion date at this stage.
Stage 1 of the works is ahead of schedule and stage 2 of the works will begin from 10am Thursday 15 April.
During stage 2, the following changes will be in place:
- The leisure pool, male change rooms and the multi-purpose room will be closed to the public
- One family changeroom will be available
- The female changerooms will be split into male and female facilities, separated by a locked door
- The 25m pool will reopen for public swimming from 1pm Thursday 15 April (until the end of school holidays)
From Monday 19 April, the 25m pool will return to normal Learn to Swim (LTS) Term 2 lap swimming availability.
What will this look like
The roof sheeting will be completed in three stages, which will require sections of the pool hall to be completely closed off to patrons. If we have good weather, each section should take approximately two weeks for completion. Staff will ensure patrons are given instructions of when and where you can swim on each visit.
While the works are being completed over the indoor 25m Learn to Swim (LTS) pool in stage 1, there will be no public lap swimming available from 2PM Sunday April 11, and LTS classes will be be relocated.
Gentle exercise and walking will still be available in the 17m lane of the indoor leisure pool from 5:30am to 8:00am & 12:30pm to 3:00pm, during stage 1.
Learn to Swim will run afternoon classes as normal and morning class will move to the 17m lanes in the Leisure Pool Monday to Thursday.
Stages two and three
Stages 2 and 3 will impact the 17m lanes, plus the entire Leisure Pool, Multi-purpose Room and Change Rooms. Council will provide updates and further information as this occurs.
Below highlighted in red are the stages when pool areas and the multipurpose room will be closed off to the public.
