Concrete testing to close sections of Boyne Island skate park
Sections of the Boyne Island skate park will be closed to the public on Thursday, November 16 for concrete testing, as a prelude to work starting on the facility’s upgrade and new pump track.
Contractors will be on site at Bray Park from 11am for a few hours with barricades set up to close off those areas where the testing will be carried out.
Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said the skate park would be safe to use after the testing as the core sample sites would be filled in.
“The contractors have assured us it will be safe for the remaining lifespan of the existing slab,” Councillor Burnett said.
Councillor Kahn Goodluck said the pumptrack and skate park upgrade would significantly lift the standard of the Bray Park recreational facility.
“Funding of $885,000 for the project will come from the State Government’s Works for Queensland Program with the balance of $100,000 from Council,” he said.
The project is due for completion in November 2018.
