Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry and Livingstone Shire Council Mayor Andy Ireland have today officially opened additional shade structures at the Yeppoon Lagoon.
The project was jointly funded by the Australian Government ($406,477) and Livingstone Shire Council ($100,000).
Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry said the additional shade structures will be put to great use as the weather starts to heat up.
“People from all over Central Queensland love to visit the Yeppoon Lagoon and these added shade structures will be welcomed by the community,” Ms Landry said.
“With the increasing demand for recreational usage at Lagoon Place, it is necessary that more recreational community facilities are provided.”
“The funding also included Lagoon Place improvements, the provision of arbors, barbeques, seating and shade structures,” Ms Landry said.
The project was approved under Round 1 of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
