Green Light for Mango Hill Swimming Pool

 

Federal Member for Petrie Luke Howarth MP has today announced that a re-elected Morrison Government will invest $2 million to build a new swimming pool at Mango Hill.

The funding would be put towards building a public swimming pool at the new Mango Hill State High School.

Luke Howarth MP has already announced more than $1.2 million Australian Government funding for better sporting infrastructure in North Lakes and Mango Hill – funding that is locked in and not contingent on Mr Howarth’s re-election.

Luke Howarth MP said there was desperate need for better infrastructure in the fast-growing suburbs.

“The population of North Lakes and Mango Hill has more than doubled in the last six years,” said Luke Howarth MP.

“So I’ve been working hard to deliver massive projects like the Moreton Bay Rail Link, upgrading the old Rothwell roundabout, widening the Bruce Highway and building the Boundary Road Overpass, to make local commutes safer and more efficient.

“I’ve also been speaking with members from clubs like North Lakes Blues Netball and the Eels AFL Club, and it’s become clear that we need to build and upgrade local sporting facilities.”

“We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world and it’s no wonder that so many people want to live here and create a life for themselves and their families in our region.

“I’ve been working hard to make sure locals have the infrastructure and facilities they need to chase their dreams – and while together we’ve been able to achieve so much, there’s still so much more to do.”

The $2 million commitment to build a new swimming pool at Mango Hill comes on top of an already secured $1 million towards courts and a club house for the North Lakes Blues Netball Club and $263,000 for field lighting at the North Lakes Eels.

Luke Howarth MP is also campaigning to save the North Lakes Golf Course, which is in danger of re-development.
