Wombarra Ocean Pool looks like being closed at the end of this month so crucial repair work can be carried out.
With work at Austinmer Pool still underway, it’s been recommended Wollongong Council accept a tender to spend more than a million dollars repairing the pool, extending the seawall and building a new ramp to the beach.
The report presented to Council says the pool’s shell has deteriorated, so should be replaced with pre-cast internal wall linings, while the seawall will be extended north.
Council says the newly-extended seawall , combined with the ramp, will make it safe for Council’s maintenance crews to access the pool.
Following the submission of tenders earlier this year, Dynamic Civil has been selected as Council’s preferred contractor.
Work has been scheduled for late April 2018.
