Athletics SA is pleased to announce that it has secured a further $578,000 from the South Australian Government to complete the final stages of the upgrade to the spectator areas at SA Athletics Stadium. This further investment will allow the final two stages to commence next month with an expected completion by February 2017.
This further investment takes the total investment for this project to in excess of $1.4 million. Athletics SA has worked closely with the Office for Recreation and Sport and DPTI to design and deliver this significant project. The project has been managed from Athletics SA's end by Chief Executive, Adam Bishop, and Board Member, Peter Gayen.
Athletics SA is extremely grateful for the support from the Government via the Office for Recreation and Sport. This project will transform the area for all stadium users. The Office for Recreation and Sport also recently invested more than $60,000 in a new hammer cage for the venue and a further investment to replace some of the pole vault bags and uprights.
