Emerald Oval tender gets green light


Wodonga Council has awarded the Emerald Oval construction tender to Southern Cross Developers Pty Ltd.  

In July’s council meeting, councillors voted unanimously for the company to build the new pavilion changerooms.  

Cr Ron Mildren said he believed awarding the tender was a step in the right direction for the city.  

“We’re making the right move having this constructed by a single developer,” he said.  

“This tender is the best value for money and the best opportunity to get the job done the way we want it to be done.”  

In October last year, the Andrews Government announced $160,000 funding for the pavilion from the Victorian Government Female Friendly Facilities Fund. 

Cr Speedie said in October Emerald Oval would provide a base for female cricket in Wodonga.

"This facility will provide a greater level of service to all female participants, spectators and community members that are involved with activities at Emerald Oval by providing amenities that presently do not exist," Cr Speedie said.

"This oval is predominantly used for training but this project will allow for Emerald Oval to be used as a stand-alone match venue and accommodate the expansion of football and cricket as well offer new opportunities."

The council will provide an $80,000 contribution to the $240,000 project.

The tender works will start on August 6 and are scheduled to be completed in February next year.

The Female Friendly Facilities Fund is part of the Victorian Government’s strong commitment to sports and active recreation, gender equality and to encourage all Victorians to get out there and get active.
