Milestones reached at major projects in Wellington

Work is progressing on the redevelopment of the Wellington Aquatic Leisure Centre with the pools, main building and plant room all reaching milestones.

It is part of an exciting time for the Dubbo Region, with Mayor Ben Shields also pleased to see significant progress at Wellington’s Rygate Park.

“There are a number of important projects being completed across the community and I know how eager people are to see them finished,” Councillor Shields said.

“I know how important this pool is to the Wellington community so it is fantastic to see the work progressing and I know it is going to look great when it is complete.

“There were a lot of problems with the old pool but this new one will be state of the art and offer so much for families and dedicated swimmers alike.”

Work at Rygate Park is also progressing well with amenities blocks and multi-purpose courts now completed. Lighting for the courts will be finished next month, with work also due to be carried out on the car park in the coming weeks.

Earlier this week Councillor Shields inspected the courts at Rygate Park with Wellington Business Chamber secretary Jess Gough, who said the park was a great facility for the community.

The NSW Government provided $7.5 million in funding through Stronger Communities for the Wellington Aquatic Leisure Centre redevelopment.

The Rygate Park project has been jointly funded between the NSW Government and Dubbo Regional Council.

The amenities block was co-founded between Stronger Communities ($565,000) and Dubbo Regional Council ($191,500). The multi-purpose courts were co-funded between Stronger Country Communities Fund Round 1 ($200,000) and Dubbo Regional Council ($465,000). The irrigation system and carpark funded by Dubbo Regional Council (est: $50,000).
