First light tower going up at Manuka Oval

By 13 December 2012 5

Andrew Barr has let it be known that at 9am this morning the first light tower is going up at Manuka Oval.

I eagerly await Canberra’s admission into the horrifically named Big Bash League on this basis.

Yeah, I would have thought we could host a team in the BBL.

While you are there Mr Barr… get off your soapbox and make it happen

Not before time … PM’s XI is all of six weeks away.

I heard an allegation that these lights were to be somehow temporary … surely this can’t be the case?

Well, we’re all temporary aren’t we?

A Canberra Comets (or whatever) BBL team would be very cool.

Hell yeah,
RiotACT should get a huge Pakistani marquee (or a corporate box)

No they had to do some serious concrete foundations for the lights. There was a preference for retractable lighting, but for the cost and the timeframe its not possible. Of course i’m sure the Manuka Residents association or similar will complain.
