Power outage at Wagga Beach for Riverside - Stage 2 electrical works

Published: 09 Oct 2020 9:14am

Wagga Wagga Beach users are advised the amenities building and barbeque shelters will be without power on Wednesday and Thursday (14-15 October) for electrical works.

The power outage will allow Wagga Wagga City Council to upgrade the existing transformer and main switchboard as part of Stage 2 of the Riverside Redevelopment.

The project integrates the former St Michael’s Oval and the former caravan park site into a large multipurpose public recreation space.

The aim is to activate the precinct and develop the area as a focal point and destination for residents and visitors, as well as create linkages to the city’s CBD.

Project Manager Srivalli Miah said while the amenities building will be without power, the toilets will remain open for use.

“There will also be some noise associated with this work, but every effort will be made to minimise the impact on residents and Wagga Beach users,” Ms Miah said.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this work may cause and appreciate the patience of residents.”

The work will be carried out from 8.00am to 4.30pm on Wednesday 14 October 2020 and Thursday 15 October 2020, weather permitting.
