Martin oval fence under construction

CONSTRUCTION began last week on the new fencing that will encompass the perimeter of Johnny Martin Oval.

The 2.1m high steel powder coated picket security fencing will cost about $250,000 and is expected to be completed by May 16.

Council is contributing $100,000 to the construction, while the remaining $150,000 had been funded through the Rural Development Australia Fund (federal funding).

The fence will be lockable, however it will remain open for the majority of time, except for bigger and or ticketed events at the oval.

It is hoped that the fencing will help alleviate the vandalism that regularly occurs within the vicinity, including to the grandstand and the skate park area.
