Construction to replace existing toilets at the Port Hedland Civic Centre Gardens with universal access facilities has commenced.

Upgrades will take place between June 18 and July 2 as part of the Town’s commitment to improving accessibility across major play areas, parks and gardens.

Town of Port Hedland Mayor Peter Carter said the upgrades would ensure all community members were able to access facilities.

“The installation of two Universally Accessible Toilets at the Civic Centre Gardens will make the space more accessible for more people, both for everyday use by locals and tourists, as well as for during public events such as the Twilight Movie Series and North West Festival,” he said.

“Council and I are committed to improving the accessibility of Hedland’s built environment, creating a more inclusive township in line with the Town’s Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2017-2022.”
