KOOMBANA CAR PARK PROJECT
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?
ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:
I thank the member for the question.
I know the member is very concerned that we do not build singing toilets.
(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.
subcommittee of the Bunbury Development Committee has been briefed on the
toilet block and supports the proposal.
