Sunbury fountain out of action during delayed repairs.

Sunbury fountain upgrade delayed

Sunbury’s famous water feature, turned off at the start of June for upgrade work to begin, is still looking a little sad a month later.

The iconic fountain on O’Shanassy St is having a $35,000 upgrade to replace its water jets, but Hume Council says it may be some time before the water is turned on again.

A spokesperson for the council’s building maintenance department says: “There has been a delay with the fabrication. Completion is now expected late July or early August.”

Around $200,000 was spent installing lights and a perimeter wall to accomodate the water jets in 2017.
