Budget pre-announcement continues today with an upgrade to Gungahlin’s fenced oval in the form of a grandstand courtesy of Andrew Barr.
I am pleased to announce that $6.5 million has been allocated in this year’s budget for the construction of a new grandstand at the Gungahlin Enclosed Oval.
To be built on the western side of the oval, the grandstand will provide covered seating for 580 people and open seating for a further 850. It will also provide four team change rooms, two officials’ change rooms, public toilets, a first aid room, kiosk, club room and storage facilities.
The grandstand’s design is complete and the Development Application has been approved, allowing work to commence towards the end of this year while the grassing and associated landscaping is occurring at the oval.
