Cumberland Council has announced the construction tender for the $8.8 million
Wentworthville swimming pool upgrade.


The project will see the construction of a new program pool, new change rooms and
a café. A lift will also be installed to allow people with disabilities to use the existing
50 metre pool.


“I know this new pool is eagerly awaited by recreational and competitive swimmers in
our community,” Mayor Steve Christou said.


“Our residents deserve facilities that are modern and this $8.8 million upgrade at
Wentworthville pool delivers just that.


“When I first got elected as Mayor I stated that one of my main priorities were the
redevelopment of Wentworthville and significant infrastructure upgrades in the area.


This multimillion-dollar upgrade of Wentworthville pool goes a long way to fulfilling
that commitment.


“Council is now finalising contract negotiations with Omnistruct Building, our
preferred tenderer.


“Demolition works at the site are complete and the site is ready for construction work
to begin. We hope to have the pool completed in time for next summer.”
