Contracts awarded for Greater Shepparton Regional Sports Precinct
Greater Shepparton City Council has awarded a series of contracts for the Greater Shepparton Regional Sports Precinct.
Mawson Constructions has won the $4.3 million contract for the construction of the East/West Linking roadway, roundabouts, footpaths, stormwater, car parks, fencing and street lighting on the site, while Tuff Turf N Co has been awarded the $890,000 contract for upgrades to the facility’s athletics track.
Backed by the Federal Government, the Council and Shepparton Little Athletics, work will involve the removal of the turf track and the installation of a synthetic running track and a synthetic area will also be constructed to provide space for two high jump areas and a javelin run-up area.
During, the construction, which is expected to take six months, the Little Athletics Association will relocate to the Mooroopna Recreation Reserve to conduct their competitions.
Commenting on the contracts, Greater Shepparton City Council Mayor Dinny Adem stated “now with the boulevard and athletics track contracts being awarded we will begin to really see the changes at the sports precinct.”
Mayor Adem added “I would also like to thank the Little Athletics Association for their understanding and patience for being relocated during the works. I am sure the short term relocation will be worthwhile in the long term for a new athletics track.”
The overall Greater Shepparton Regional Sports Precinct is a $19 million redevelopment that aims to establish the precinct as a nationally significant sporting complex. The redevelopment will enhance Council’s ability to secure and retain new major sporting events and national championships that might normally be held in capital cities or interstate.
Greater Shepparton Regional Sports Precinct total redevelopment will include:
• Construction of the Community Football Complex
