An estimated $80,000 in repair works have leaped from the starting blocks at Tamworth City Pool.
It’s hoped the facility, which was closed in April due to water restrictions, will reopen once the city moves back to Level 3.
Council has recently detected structural damage to the pool, including deteriorating walls.
A contractor is now on site to complete the first of several scaffolding works.
If no problems are encountered, the project is expected to wrap by the start of next month.
