Asbestos found in parkland soil
PARKLAND in North Rockhampton has been closed after asbestos was discovered in the soil.
Rockhampton Regional Council told The Morning Bulletin the asbestos was reported by a member of the public.
The park has since been closed to the public.
Council CEO Evan Pardon said a licences contractor conducted a sweep of the parkland when the reports were received.
“Small coin-size pieces of asbestos were discovered and collected by the contractor,” he said.
