Jmac has won a $1.2 million contract to deliver a new youth-focused park in Townsville’s northern suburbs.
The North Shore Youth Activation Hub will provide local kids with a skate park, obstacle course, teenage playground, multi-use games area and a heavy duty outdoor DJ table.
The Youth Activation Hub is expected to be completed before the December school holidays this year.
Townsville City Council has partnered with Stockland to deliver the project.
Channel dredging under way
Dredging of Victoria Creek Channel, Taylors Beach (main picture) starts this week, with Timrith Transport as contractor.
Hinchinbrook Mayor Ramon Jayo said works to dredge the channel would involve excavating an area about 30m wide, with the excavated sand used to replenish erosion-prone areas on the beach front near the stinger net.
“Taylors Beach plays a significant recreation role for our local community and visitors to the district, and maintaining safe access to the local water ways is important’,” he said.
The work will take place at low tide August 8-13. The budgeted amount for the work was $100,000.
