Work on constructing a new cricket wicket block and refurbished outfield on the Hagley Oval will start within the next few days.
Michael Aitken General Manager Community Services says work involves the redevelopment of the existing wicket and outfield including the repair and renewal of irrigation and drainage.
“We are in the process of letting the contract and expect work to start in the next few days and continue into the spring. Once work starts you can expect to see trucks, tractors and diggers working on the site to construct the wicket block and to shift soil around the site to improve the ground slopes for drainage,” he says.
This work falls within the Council’s Long Term Council Community Plan (LTCCP) objectives for Hagley Oval and fits within the Council’s mandate to manage and enhance its public outdoor recreation assets.
