Griffith Regional Sports Precinct
Work is underway on the $24.8M Sports Precinct for our region, with thanks to funding of $10M from the Regional Sports Infrastructure Fund (NSW Government), $4.5M from the Building Better Regions Fund (Commonwealth Government) and $10.3M from Griffith City Council.
A consultation session was held with Griffith Swim Club and Griffith Sports Council recently, where the plans for GRALC were discussed. Further community consultation will be taking place in the coming months with all members of the public encouraged to have their say on this important project.
The GRALC portion of the Sport Precinct will see the construction of a 50m outdoor swimming pool, new changerooms and toilets, accessibility ramp into the pool, and a new pump room to accommodate the needs of all the new pool at an estimated cost of approximately $6M.
Council will be calling for tenders for a Project Management Team to oversee the entire Regional Sports Precinct Project and hope to have appointed a Project Manager by October this year.
Following that process, tenders will be called for a Detailed Design & Construct of the GRALC component. It is anticipated that this will be finalised by early 2020, and construction on the GRALC 50m pool to commence in the first half of 2020.
