Shepparton’s Senior Citizens centre is getting a set of modern, comfortable and accessible toilets moving in next door.
Work on the all accessible toilets, set to cost about $172000, will begin next week.
Two toilet compartments, a unisex wheelchair accessible toilet and an ambulant toilet will be included in the new building, while pathways will create access from Welsford St and Monash Park.
The toilets will be added to the north-east corner of the building next to the rose arbour.
Greater Shepparton City Council’s neighbourhoods manager Amanda Tingay said the project would be completed by the end of April.
‘‘The new building will provide a modern and comfortable facility, compliant with current Australian accessibility standards,’’ Ms Tingay said.
‘‘Council recognises the inconvenience caused by this project, however the community and tourists will benefit greatly from these new toilets.’’
Pathways between Welsford St and Monash Park will be closed during construction.
