Work to start on RSL expansion

WORK is just weeks away from starting on the $3.6 million renovation project for the Bundaberg RSL.

General manager Col Rankin said the RSL was happy to be able to give the job to a local tender, Murchie Constructions.

"We are happy that much, if not all, the work will be done by locals," Mr Rankin said.

The renovations, which will include an extension to the ground floor, new toilet amenities, increased gaming area and a new bar, should start in early October and be finished in five months.

Mr Rankin said he did not expect any major disruptions to operations of the club, except for some noise from the construction.

Murchie Constructions owner Andrew Murchie said the company was pleased to be involved in the project.

Mr Murchie said the job should employ an average of 10 people a day during the project.
