Work is still in progress on Lautoka’s million-dollar Aquatic Swimming Pool.

The company that is contracted to the project, Metal Works and Joinery Limited are working tirelessly to get the project completed quickly for the benefit of the Lautoka residents.

The Managing Director, Salesh Singh, said he was not able to make any comment but could only state that works on the Aquatic Swimming Pool were still in progress and his team was trying their best to complete the project soon.

The $12.6million Aquatic Swimming Pool is located at the Lautoka Botanical Gardens.

The cost of the aquatic centre had increased from $7.3 million to $12.6 million because it aimed to be the best in Fiji.

The aquatic centre will have an Olympic standard 50 metres x 10 lanes competition pool, 25 metres x right lanes warm-up pool and a children’s pool with the relevant facilities available.

With the second phase of the project, it would include a modern pavilion which would allow the aquatic centre to host international swimming competitions and even local competitions as well.

The aquatic centre is built amongst the flowers and trees at Lautoka’s Botanical Gardens.

Last year the Council stated that they would later look at providing roofing for the area and it was not clear yesterday whether the present construction has included it or not.
