What works were completed?

The works that have been completed during the period of closure include:

  • removal of existing tiles and retiling of all walls and floors in the 25m pool, leisure pool, associated ramp and toddlers pool
  • installation of a new entry point with stairs and a handrail in the leisure pool as part of the ongoing safety improvement works that commenced in May 2018
  • retiling of the spa.

Why were these works required?

In mid to late 2017 single and large patches of tiles started to come away and displace from the pool wall due to issues with the tile adhesive. 

The works undertaken to the entire pool was required to permanently rectify and address the issue.
