Local Works in Hobsons Bay

local works

The works on Stage One of the Cherry Lake upgrade has finally been finished.  The works included a new toilet, sensory garden, car park and landscaping.  The new toilet at Frazer Reserve, Seaholme is also now operational.
The new Williamstown Library is expected to be finished in the later half of this year.  Works are progressing well and it will no doubt be a popular place for residents to visit.  The new all accessibility access between the library and town hall is very impressive too – I’m looking forward to chairing a meeting of the city’s Disability Advisory Committee at the old Williamstown Council Chambers.
