Previously it had been suggested that February 2020 was the possible construction date of the new mobile phone tower to be built in bush land midway between Arbour and Baringa, on a site to the north of Baringa State Primary School. Access to the proposed site is available along the pathway at the end of Koala Court in Little Mountain
Regretfully the suggested construction time failed to materialize.
However, recently, BeCA received information from a source within Telstra that construction of the phone tower has been scheduled for ‘early in the new financial year’, possibly as early as July or August.
In its communication with Telstra, BeCA continually points out the poor mobile phone reception available to all users across our area.
Businesses suffer when calls drop out or calls just fail to connect.
BeCA will continue to press Telstra for updates on a possible construction date. We have been led to believe a February construction date had been set and this failed to occur.
We hope the new suggested date becomes a reality.
