Successful tenderer John Shanks, with Wattle Range Mayor Des Noll, and Council's Director Engineering Services Peter Halton, at the nature play space in the Domain, Millicent.

Local engineering firm J & M Shanks were the successful tenderer for the supply and installation of a slide for the Domain nature playground in Millicent.

The fully enclosed stainless-steel slide structure will come off near the existing cubby house on the hill and run 10.5 metres to the ground adding another exciting element to this play area.

Wattle Range Council Mayor Des Noll is impressed with the quality of the project: “The Domain nature play is progressing well and it is great to see a number of local suppliers and contractors being utilised to complete the project,” he said.

“The slide will be one of the last major components to be installed, followed by landscaping and tree planting by Council’s staff and finally some seating to be added to the area to balance the play component with relaxation and reflection.

"Once all of the works are completed a risk assessment will be conducted and the play space will be independently audited, to ensure that it has been built to Australian Standards. Council will then have great pleasure in proudly opening the facility to the public," Mayor Noll concluded.
