Construction has begun on the long-awaited Monash and W.H Corrigan Reserves re-development which will provide users a new modern multi-use pavilion accompanied by 10 newly reconstructed courts with state of the art LED technology lighting. Mayor Graeme Middlemiss was joined by Federal Member for Monash Mr Russell Broadbent, Member for Eastern Victoria Ms Harriet Shing along with West Ward Councillors Sharon Gibson and Brad Law in turning the sod to mark the start of construction.
With the turning of the sod the future of sports participation and recreation in Latrobe City looks brighter as the Monash and W.H Corrigan Reserves re-development creates a multi-sport complex that will have ongoing positive effects to a greater community. The redevelopment will provide the user groups and the community with the necessary infrastructure to participate in their respective sports regardless of age, gender or abilities. The improvements to the Monash and W.H Corrigan Reserves demonstrate Latrobe City’s ongoing commitment to building an active liveable Regional City.
The Monash and W.H Corrigan Reserves re-development will cost $3.8 million and is co-funded between the Federal ($800,000) and State ($3,000,000) Governments. Local contractors LANGDEN Constructions and Ace Earthmoving have been awarded the contract for the pavilion and court construction. The use of local contractors and sub-contractors will provide a benefit to the local regional economy and community through local employment.
The scheduled completion of the Monash and W.H Corrigan Reserves re-development is December 2019/Early 2020. Once complete the Monash and W.H Corrigan Reserves will be the new home of Moe and District Netball Association which will share the new facilities with Newborough Tennis Club and the Adrenalin Paintball Club.
"The re-development of the Monash and W.H Corrigan Reserves has been in the works for a number of years and we are greatly appreciative of the Federal and State governments coming together to fund this multi-sport hub which will benefit the Newborough/Moe area and Latrobe City" – Mayor Cr Graeme Middlemiss
