Resurfaced BMX Track, Enhanced Lighting, and Safety Measures Among Completed and Ongoing Projects.
Wyndham City is getting closer to completing a series of upgrades to its sporting facilities. Recent and ongoing projects include resurfacing the BMX start hill, improving lighting, and installing barrier netting.
The Wyndham Warriors BMX track in Hoppers Crossing has undergone renovations to resurface the start hill. This has resulted in a smoother surface that not only enhances safety but also makes the track ready for competition.
At Williams Landing Reserve, Wyndham City has erected fences around the soccer pitches to ensure safety. This measure prevents balls from entering the roads and people from chasing after them.
Galvin Park soccer pitch 1 has improved lighting, enabling evening training sessions and matches. Additionally, the installation of lighting at Price Reserve in Werribee South is nearly complete. Works are also underway to install barrier netting at Saltwater Reserve in Point Cook, with goal netting to follow at Goddard Street Reserve in Tarneit.
Councillor Peter Maynard, the holder of the Wyndham City Active City portfolio, highlighted the significant benefits these improvements bring to the local sporting clubs, spectators, and visiting teams. He emphasized that these upgrades reflect Wyndham City’s ongoing commitment to providing state-of-the-art sporting venues for the community.
Previous completed works include the installation of an electronic scoreboard and new player shelters at Grange Reserve in Hoppers Crossing, the addition of park bench seats at Arndell Park Reserve in Truganina, and the implementation of synthetic matting at the Victoria University Sporting Complex in Werribee.
Moreover, more upgrades are on the horizon. Construction will soon commence on lighting renewal at Galvin Park oval 1, as well as the installation of new lighting at Williams Landing Reserve oval 1 and Saltwater Reserve tennis courts (courts 5-8).
These upgrades have the potential to significantly improve the experience for players and spectators at Wyndham’s sporting venues.
