Work continues on new Cuttriss Street toilets

Bass Coast Shire Council’s works to install a new foreshore toilet block near the intersection of Cuttriss Street and The Esplanade in Inverloch are expected to continue in mid-March, with the project to be complete by the end of April, weather permitting.

Construction of a new sewer rising main, in readiness for the installation of the new toilet block, has been completed this week.

Temporary fencing around five car parks in the area will be removed in time for the Labor Day long weekend.

The toilet was originally scheduled to be installed in mid-February; however the project was postponed in response to concerns from community members about works being undertaken in the area during the peak holiday season.

Temporary toilets will remain at the site until the new toilet block is completed.

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, said people may notice the toilets look a little different to what they’ve seen before.

“Construction of this new toilet block was one of the key directions included in the Cuttriss Street Activity Area Plan July 2014,” Cr Rothfield said.

“The design of the toilets was informed by additional community consultation, and the building will actually be portable, should it ever need to be relocated.”

The works will not cause any disruption or inconvenience to community members and visitors over the Easter long weekend.

The overall project cost is $263,000, and is part of Council’s Capital Works Program 2016/17.
