NEWS RELEASE

Work begins on stage one of Fraser Park Sportsville project

The first stage of work on the Fraser Park Sportsville project will begin when Mayor Ray Wallace breaks ground on 5th September.

The project is being managed by Hutt City Community Facilities Trust, in partnership with Fraser Park Sportsville and Hutt City Council. PCL Contracting is the main contractor.

Alister Skene, CFT Chairman says, “We are delighted to be entering the construction phase of this project.
“When completed, Fraser Park Sportsville will be a regionally and nationally significant precinct for sport, recreation and other community facilities.”

Mayor Ray Wallace says, “It’s great to see work beginning on the redevelopment of Fraser Park, the biggest sports ground in the Wellington Region.
The work we’re starting today will benefit a number of sporting codes and will continue to have impact for many years to come.”

Stage one of the three-stage project will cost approximately $3 million dollars and will include:
Installation of an artificial rugby/football turf and floodlights
Upgrade of Diamond 1 including new floodlights and the installation of an artificial infield
Upgrade of existing Diamond 3
Diamond 4 upgraded to lime infield, and
Installation of Grass Diamond 3 (temporary).

The majority of work is expected to be contained within the enclosure, which means other sporting codes won’t be affected.

Mark Heissenbuttel, Chairman of the Fraser Park Sportsville Board says, “To reach this stage is a result of years of hard work from the founding sports clubs and associations.”

“It is extremely satisfying, and we are excited at the opportunities the developments are going to provide to all our sports clubs, and all users of Fraser Park.”

Stage one is set to be complete by April 2015 and a launch event will be held at that time.

Stage two of the project is the construction of a multi-purpose, recreational hub including indoor training areas, squash courts, social spaces, meeting rooms, office areas and a restaurant and café. This stage is planned for construction 2015-2017.

Date – Friday, 5th September
Time - 10am
Location – Avalon Rugby Club Grandstand, Percy Cameron St, Avalon

Notes
Contractor’s main point of entry during the works will be between the rugby and squash clubs on Percy Cameron Street.
