The first official week of demolition work on the Gunnedah Memorial Pool has seen the former toddlers pool demolished and parts of the outdoor pool demolished.

Following the official sod turning ceremony on October 24, Hines Construction have been hard at work with the early stages of the $11.4 million renewal project.

Gunnedah Shire Council (GSC) special projects manger Mike Silver said the month of November would be dedicated to demolition works.

“Hines Construction have set aside November for demolition works,” Mr Silver said.

“At this stage we are slightly ahead of schedule and we are hoping to have completed all demolition works and removed all debris by the end of November.”

Mr Silver said the demolition of the outdoor pool was still under way.

“The demolition of the outdoor pool is about 70 per cent done,” he said.

“All the pool walls are down, as is the above ground pool surrounds, but the floor of the deep end of the pool is still being removed.”

The project is expected to be complete before the 2018/19 summer season.
