Traralgon Sports Stadium
The Traralgon Sports Stadium (TSS) will be redeveloped and expanded for multi-purpose use, allowing the centre to host large-scale events such as regional, national and international championships.
The existing indoor stadium and administration areas will be overhauled, including refurbishment of the show court and construction of additional courts for netball, basketball, badminton and other indoor sports.
What’s happening now?
New concept plans for the TSS redevelopment have been made public and the design and construct tender for the project is now live.
A four-court extension to the existing stadium featuring a new show court with 3000 capacity spectator seating and associated amenities is the cornerstone of concept plans for the Catterick Crescent site.
A $2 million top-up from Sport and Recreation Victoria’s Community Sports Infrastructure loan scheme has brought the total funding for the centre up to $19 million, with plans to bring the centre to a total of eight compliant courts for local use and increase its ability to attract and host major events.
A new cricket pavilion will also be developed – to accommodate the footprint of the expansion – positioning it to utilise the existing oval and the adjacent school facility for junior activities.
Becon Constructions has won the design and construct tender and will utilise local sub contractors on the build.
A Project Reference Group (PRG), including community representatives and user groups, has met numerous times during this process and continues to act as a key consultation conduit between Council and community.
