A TENDER has been accepted for the installation of sportsfield lighting at Coledale’s St James Park.
On Monday May 31, Wollongong City Council accepted the tender for LED lighting towers at the popular football pitch.
Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said It’s no secret the city loves sport.
“Our sports grounds are continuously being used all year-round supporting teams of all ages, sporting codes and skill levels,” he said..
“It’s important for Council to meet the increasing demand for quality facilities, as we recognise that these play a key role in driving community participation and sustainability.”
Council’s Sports Ground and Sporting Facilities Strategy 2017-2021 identifies sportsfield lighting as a key priority as there is an increasing demand for training and competition use from sporting clubs.
“We’re committed to improving and maintaining facilities at these sites with upgrades such as sports field lighting which will increase the time our sporting clubs can safely use these facilities,” Cr Bradbery said.
“As we continue to upgrade and maintain our sport facilities, our community members can continue to play the game they love with lighting of the most efficiency, both energy usage and light quality.”
Works on site are expected to start in July and are due to be completed by October depending on weather and other conditions.
