The new steel framed shade structure being built at Collinsville Skate Rink is expected to be complete by August 14.
The project involves the erection of a permanent free standing steel roof structure with western facing drop wall to add additional protection against the daytime sun and enable further daytime utilisation of the rink.
The pier holes were bored and completed yesterday in preparation for the steel structure to be delivered by an external supplier today.
However, due to a supply delay in the base connections the shed was not delivered and Merrick Constructions followed up on the non-delivery and received correspondence from the supplier that the revised delivery date of the shade structure is now early next week.
Whitsunday Regional Council CEO Barry Omundson said council were experiencing some project delays across the region as a consequence of the massive amount of cyclone restoration work.“Council has all hands on deck to complete projects as quickly as possible but the large scope of works also impacted our external suppliers causing delays.
“This knock on effect includes all trades undertaking other works besides restoration and we assure residents that projects are being completed as quickly as possible.
The Collinsville Skate Rink shade structure is expected to take 10-14 days so the revised anticipated completion date (subject to the delivery of the structure by external contactor) is now August 14.
Access to the skating rink will not be possible during this time.
The Collinsville pool which was also impacted during Cyclone Debbie remains closed.
The damage has been assessed and a major leak in the lines was identified as the major issue.Council is confident that the leak issue can be repaired in time for the pool to re-open by the start of the September school holidays.
