Major renovation of the Park’s sports surfaces and renewal of the irrigation system.
The sports field condition at Elmwood Park has been below an acceptable level for some years, the main issues being poor field levels and turf cover, a marginal irrigation system and poor alignment of the cricket blocks.
Heaton Street, Strowan.
06 March 2023 to 31 December 2023. Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm. Saturday, 8am to 6pm (weather/site condition dependent).
The contractor is Terrafirma Turf. Phone Chris Lewis on 021 994 430.
The park will be re-levelled and new grass established. A new irrigation system will be installed. Two of the three cricket blocks will be repositioned to provide a safer playing environment as well as minimising the impact from winter sports use. Work will be completed in two stages to keep as much of the park open for public use as long as possible and to minimise disruption.
Stage 1 scope of works:
Stage 2 scope of works, commencing Spring 2023:
We anticipate there will be some on-going noise associated with general sports field re-levelling activity and as materials are brought into the site and excavated materials removed. We will be making every effort to minimise the impact of this work as much as possible.
A temporary access way will be made for vehicles to enter the site off Heaton Street Road. This may cause some temporary disruption to public access to the section of the site remaining open during the works.
There may be increased noise, dust and vibrations during work but it shouldn’t impact on your power, water, gas or phone services.
Safety is our biggest priority so please keep children and pets away from worksites.
Please put your bins out as usual before 6am on your collection day. Our crew will move and return them if needed.
