Kingscliff pool closed

Tweed Regional Aquatic Centre Kingscliff closed for the day after electricity supplies to the complex were disrupted by the accident.

TRAC aquatic facilities supervisor Glenn Nott said the power cut disrupted the pool filtration system.

‘We apologise for the inconvenience but we can’t have members of the public using the pools while the filtration system isn’t operating,” Mr Nott said.

‘We’re hopeful electricity supplies will be restored in time for Kingscliff TRAC to reopen tomorrow morning at 5.30am.
