Fraser Street Toilets

Greater Shepparton City Council will be commencing building works at Fraser Street toilets.

The works will include demolition of the existing building and construction of a modern and comfortable facility compliant to current accessibility standards. The new building will include a Changing Places toilet, unisex accessible toilet, male toilets with one ambulant toilet, female toilets with one ambulant toilet, a parent’s room including feeding rooms, a toilet and baby change facilities. The project is proposed to commence on 14 March 2017.

The contractor for the new toilets is Crow Constructions. During the demolition and the rebuild of the new toilets the works will cause temporary inconvenience for the public and businesses. The Telstra tower will be unavailable to the public for the duration of the project due to the access requirements within the site compound.

Alternative toilets have been provided during this new build, with 3 portable toilets and 1 accessible toilet located in Fraser Street. A baby change facility is located in the Harris Scarfe shopping complex.

The build is expected to finish in early July 2017 and the Greater Shepparton City Council appreciates the patience of the public and businesses during the building works.
