The Shire is excited to announce the commencement of restoration works on the Merredin Water Tower, with the installation of scaffolding to start next Monday, 15 April 2024.
These works will include improving the structural integrity of both the wooden tower and its metal tank, while ensuring minimal impact to, and preservation of, the aesthetic of the tower in order to maintain historical accuracy.
The restoration works will take approximately 3-4 months to complete.
Shire President Mark McKenzie expressed his enthusiasm for the commencement of this project, which has been in development for five years.
“We would like to extend our gratitude to the Public Transport Authority and the Wheatbelt Development Commission for their financial support, to allow us to save the Merredin Water Tower, which has become an icon of not only Merredin, but of the Wheatbelt,” he said.
During the works, some areas of Pioneer Park will be temporarily closed to the public. However, access to the park and the adjacent museums will be maintained.
If you have any questions or queries, please contact the Shire of Merredin on 9041 1611.
