Be Alert in View Street as Stadium Slab Poured Over Coming Weeks
Friday, 19 June, 2020 - 11:00
There will soon be a lot of truck movements in View Street, Mansfield, possibly as frequently as every 15 to 30 minutes, as the slab is poured for the new dual court stadium.
Mansfield Shire Mayor, Cr Marg Attley OAM said Council wanted to advise the community that works are due to start on Thursday, 25 June and may take up to six weeks, depending on the weather.
“We’re excited to see construction progressing and we want to advise that the concrete trucks, if weather allows, will be using View Street between 7am and 6pm. Therefore, we ask parents and families to take extra care during pick-up and drop-off times at the school,” Cr Attley said.
“Likewise, residents need to be aware of increased truck movements when coming to and from their properties,” she said.
Council has requested that the concrete contractor uses View Street only for deliveries (not the other side streets).
Cr Attley said the steel frame for the stadium is now 90% complete and the project is on schedule to be completed by early 2021.
The dual court stadium is a joint project of the Mansfield Secondary College, the Victorian Department of Education and Training and Mansfield Shire Council. Earlier this year, Council received $3.4million funding from the federal government’s Community Development Grants toward the project and Council will contribute $3,356,636.
“Council is pleased to be partnering with Mansfield Secondary College for the construction of the dual court indoor sports stadium, dual outdoor multipurpose courts, car-parking, school bus turn-around and associated landscaping including paths and lighting. When complete early next year, these facilities will be a great addition to the town.”
The project is being delivered by the Victorian School Building Authority, who has engaged Browns Wangaratta to undertake the construction.
