The $17.6 million stage two construction work at Narellan Sports Hub is on track for completion by the end of this year.
Netball courts, synthetic athletics track, full-size rugby league field, criterium cycling track and a pedestrian and cycle path network are all part of stage two work for what is poised to become an iconic sport hub in the heart of Macarthur.
Most of the earthworks have been completed and construction of almost all of the facilities has commenced.
The work is funded through a $5 million grant from the Greater Sydney Sports Facility Fund, $11.3 million under the Western Parkland City liveability program and $1.3 million from Camden Council.
“It is fantastic to see the second part of this state-of-the-art sports facility coming to life,” says mayor of Camden Theresa Fedeli.
“Once complete, Narellan Sports Hub will be a popular destination for not only locals but many others across Sydney.
“It will be fantastic to have the ability to host a number of state competitions across many sports, including netball, athletics, hockey and rugby league.’’
Work is also under way to improve the road network around the sports hub.
“We are also working on improving access to Narellan sports hub and The Northern Road with the upgrade of the Porrende Street roundabout progressing well, with its construction to be carried out in February and early March, weather permitting,’’ Cr Fedeli said.
“The first stage of completed works to reopen in the coming months will be the new and improved access to the site from Millwood Avenue and Porrende Street, as well as new carparking to the hockey and rugby league facilities.”
