Construction on the Toowoomba Regional Council's principal depot will soon be underway after a tender was awarded to local company McNab Developments today.
The project will include: a central operations and management building, three workshop buildings, a central store, a nursery and be a centre for the local SES.
Toowoomba Councillor Geoff McDonald says it was important for council to keep facilities at a high standard:
"Our facilities are doing what they set out to achieve but they are ageing in their very nature and some are almost falling down around people.
So, we need to make sure we have a safe place for people to work - that's most important and we look at out service delivery and standards of service".
