Washdown facility ready next month
THE region’s first community washdown facility is expected to open in Collinsville in July, 2018.
LDC committed to fund the small vehicle community washdown facility, worth $10,000, as a result of the LDC and Burdekin Dry Tropics Regional Pest Management Group’s Pest Advisory Forum held in Collinsville in March, where graziers raised concerns about biosecurity risks associated with outside bodies accessing grazing lands.
The facility will be developed and maintained by the Whitsundays Regional Council (WRC).
In the interests of working with the whole Bowen Broken Bogie (BBB) community to achieve long-term economic, social and environmental benefits, LDC project managers see this as a much-needed and overdue facility.
It has allowed the WRC to plan for a second washdown facility for larger vehicles.
Watch this space for an update as to when the washdown facility will be open to the public.
Work has begun on the small vehicle washdown facility which will be available for everybody to use.
