Anyone know what’s the go with the big slab?

By troll-sniffer - 11 February 2010 8

Perchanced to see yesterday what looks like a a huge concrete slab the size of a city block being laid between the ANU Sports Centre and Barry Drive.  What’s it for?

Wasn’t able to get up close so I couldn’t try and identify anything about it other than the workmen were laying a diagonal pattern of blocks or similar across a dead flat base.

Ovals will be for general use ie footbal, rugby, afl, cricket and hockey however, the turf is considerably longer than a hockey turf field so not as good for hockey.

Anyone know whether it’s going to be a hockey-only pitch? Will the hoi polloi be able to rock up and play football (soccer), as we used to?

Resurfacing of Willows Oval: “As part of The University Environmental Management plan, which aims to reduce the use of potable water on campus by 50% by 2025, Willows Oval is currently being re-fitted with a synthetic turf surface.”

ANU are covering that oval in some sort of artificial surface so that they don’t have to water it any more.
