CT brings us the news that the Canberra Liberals will shelve Labor’s plans for a new Canberra Stadium in the city should they be elected, instead focussing on refurbishing the existing stadium in Bruce. Built in 1977 it was constructed with a 50 year lifespan in mind which is coming up soon.
In theory a refurbishment along the lines of Forsyth Barr stadium in Otago NZ will be cheaper than building a new stadium from scratch. The ‘extra’ money being put towards health and education.
New stadium or refurbish?
