Rain won't dampen pool progress

NOT EVEN torrential rain could affect the progress of the Maryborough Pool's revamp, says Win Constructions Queensland foreman Mike Ryan. Despite the recent deluge the project was delayed just three days.

"We've made a lot of progress despite the rain," he said.

"The base layer of concrete has gone down over the drains, so we are preparing to lay the slab within the next few days."

Mr Ryan said that while the rain had caused work to stop for a few days, preparation was still going ahead for the building's footings. "Right now we are working on getting the bases down for the buildings," he said.

"That means more work can be done for the kiosk and bathroom areas."

Work on the pool's exterior walls won't begin until after the New Year, Mr Ryan said.

"We are hoping to start the walls in January," he said.

"Overall, we are still well on track for the completion date."
