Whitsunday Regional Council today resolved to install new safety fencing around Pioneer Park inProserpine.
Mayor Jenny Whitney said the decision to fence the park was made after Council received letters of concern from the public regarding the lack of safety fencing around Pioneer Park.
“Some residents are concerned about the adequacy of the existing low bollards as a barrierbetween the park and Blair Road and Main Street,” she said.
“Pioneer Park is highly utilised by tourists and locals and only has low bollards around theperimeter of the parkland, which children can easily pass through onto the nearby streets.
“The safest option preferred by Council is to fence the Blair Road and Main Street frontagesaround the park using pool fencing material at a cost of $12,430.
“Council is pleased to be able to provide this option to make Pioneer Park safer for locals andtourists to utilise,” she said.
The fencing of Pioneer Park will be considered in the upcoming budget review.
