In a busy start to the year, Sports Minister Andrew Barr has announced that the ACT Government will install lighting at 11 sporting fields this year as part of new ground maintenance measures developed during the drought.
The Government has developed a $2 million package to maintain the most frequently used sporting grounds.
The strategy has meant other fields are not maintained.
Sports Minister Andrew Barr says the decision about which grounds to light was made in consultation with users.
The grounds include Gowrie, Mawson, Curtin East, Lyneham, Dickson, Reid and O’Connor.
