Southern Downs Regional Council has contracted licensed asbestos removalists to remove asbestos in the southern and eastern sections of the Warwick Town Hall as well as in rooms beneath the town hall, with work due to begin this weekend, Saturday 22 April.
The asbestos sheeting removed on the southern and eastern sides of the building will be replaced with new sandstone-coloured corrugated iron, which is in accordance with the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection Exemption Certificate for works on a State heritage-listed building.
Southern Downs Regional Council’s acting engineering services director Michael Bell said there will be changes to pedestrian access during these works.
“Pedestrian access will be limited through the laneways on either side of the town hall due to the asbestos removal exclusion zone, which will be temporarily fenced,” he said.
“The council apologises for any inconvenience caused and appreciates the public’s patience during the period of this work, which is anticipated to be completed around the end of April.
“This work is another step forward in ensuring that this highly-valued community asset is maintained to an appropriate level.“
Access to the Warwick Visitor Information Centre (VIC) located in the Warwick Town Hall will still be available via Palmerin Street. However, there will be limited service available at the information centre on Sunday 23 April due to some interruption to the power supply.
If you require further information, please contact the council on 1300 MY SDRC (1300 697 372).
