Question Without Notice No. 62 asked in the Legislative Council on 14 February 2019 by Hon Dr Steve Thomas

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 14 February 2019


62. Hon Dr STEVE THOMAS to the Minister for Regional Development:

I refer to the Koombana car park project in Bunbury and the story in the South Western Times on 21 December 2017 that quotes the minister as confirming that the $11.5 million budget included $3.5 million for an accessible toilet block.

(1) Has a toilet block been built on this site?

(2) If no to (1), will a toilet block be constructed, and at what cost?

(3) If no to (1), what savings have been made on this project and where has that money gone?

(4) What has the subcommittee of the Bunbury Development Committee recommended for the toilet proposed for this site?


I thank the member for the question. I know the member is very concerned that we do not build singing toilets.

(1) No.

(2) Yes. The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, through Building Management and Works, has commenced detailed design work for the stage 2 works. These works include an accessible toilet block, nature playground, interpretive signage, landscaping and shade structures. BMW is preparing estimates for this work, which will be available in approximately six weeks.

(3) Not applicable.

(4) The subcommittee of the Bunbury Development Committee has been briefed on the toilet block and supports the proposal.
