Work on at QEO

Bendigo Weekly | Bendigo Weekly | 02-Nov-2017


WORKS on spectator facilities at the Queen Elizabeth Oval are gathering momentum, with design work completed for the new kiosk and redeveloped entry to Bendigo’s iconic oval.

Shade shelters were constructed this year at the city end of the oval, and work has begun to install concrete bleacher-style seating underneath the shelter.

It will be similar to what is in place at the Barnard Street end of the ground and give far better seating facilities for football and cricket fans.

“Works have commenced to construct concrete spectator bleachers around the south-western part of the QEO,” council’s Lincoln Fitzgerald said.

“These will run underneath the new shelter that was constructed earlier this year, and continue behind the goals at the southern end of the ground.” 

Mr Fitzgerald said works are scheduled to be completed by Christmas.

The new kiosk/toilet facilities plan is also taking shape, with design work completed and the project sent out for tender.

“Design of the new toilet/kiosk building and surrounding landscaping is also complete,” Mr Fitzgerald said.

“Tender for the construction of the new building is due to be advertised shortly, with construction to commence in early 2018. 

“Parking within the QEO will be heavily restricted during this time.”

Council is funding the works with $1.1m allocated in its 2017/18 budget. The works form part of the Rosalind Park master plan.
