Angelo Anestis Aquatic Centre

Works are underway at the Angelo Anestis Aquatic Centre

FDC Construction and Fit Out is progressing well with the construction of the 50m Olympic pool, and the basement level of the new aquatic centre building is almost complete. Soon, work will start on the Ground Floor, which comprises the 25m indoor pool.

The project is tracking well, with the new Aquatic Centre expected to open in early 2017.

In the interest of public safety, the Bardwell Valley walkway will be closed for the duration of the construction period and signs have been erected at the site to advise users of an alternative route which can be taken.

The Section 96 application has been approved for the revised design of the Aquatic Centre. The drawings associated with the proposed $24 million Aquatic Centre are available below:
