Wet weather and COVID-19 affect Council's building and construction schedules

Narromine Council is experiencing delays in the role out of infrastructure projects across the region due to the higher than usual rainfall and COVID-19.

General Manager, Narromine Shire Council Mrs Jane Redden thanked the community for their understanding.

“Everyone acknowledges that we have had a really wet summer and autumn. Most of the new infrastructure projects have commenced on time, however timeframes for various stages are getting pushed out due to consecutive wet weather days.”

“In addition to wet weather, contractors and staff have been quite heavily impacted by COVID-19 illness as well as delays for building materials and supplies in some instances.”

“I would like to thank all of our residents for showing patience, given these adverse conditions we have experienced over the past few months. Everyone has felt the impact of this,” said Mrs Redden 

Council is doing everything it can to catch up and complete construction works as soon as possible and Council commends the contractors and staff for doing the best they can in the current conditions.

Current Council works includes Cale Oval Club House construction and improvements, Narromine Tennis Club refurbishment, Timbrebongie House project, Narromine Aquatic Centre, local and regional roads maintenance and construction and Oaks Bridge realignment to name a few.
