About 100 tradies have been working daily on the site.

Construction began on April last year and is due to complete by July.

Mr Mannoun said a dedicated team of council staff have worked closely with sub-contractors to keep the development on track, on budget, and at this stage – ahead of time.

He said some of the highlights of the development include a skate park, picnic area, outdoor gym and walking and cycling tracks.

The multi-storey library itself features under-floor air-conditioning, multiple conference rooms and the indoor sports centre has change rooms, a gym, cafe and will fit two full-sized basketball courts.
