Construction of new public toilet blocks at Moeraki and Campbells Bay will start next month.

The Waitaki District Council has received funding from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment to upgrade its facilities in the popular recreation areas.

Waitaki District Council acting recreation manager Lindsay Hyde said the two projects would cost about $640,000.

Whitestone Contracting Limited has been awarded the contract and will start work in Moeraki on February 3.

Demolition of the existing toilet block at Campbells Bay in Kakanui would start after the Moeraki project was completed in late March, Mr Hyde said.

Both projects were driven by high tourist demand, he said.

"It was a good chance to improve the facilities and get something a little bit more desirable from what we have there at the moment," he said.

The Haven St toilet block will have three toilets, while the Campbells Bay facility will feature three toilets, two changing rooms and an outside shower.

While construction is under way, portaloos will be available at Campbells Bay and, in Moeraki, the existing toilets will remain in use.
