Impact on the area
Works are being staged to minimise disruption.
A temporary stadium entrance will be open on the north side of the Basketball Centre with minimal disruption to games and players.
Access will continue to be available to the other sporting pavilions at the Reserve.
There will be some impact on access to car parking at Kananook Reserve and the stadium.
Parking restrictions will mostly affect all-day parking currently used by commuters, particularly in the early stages of the project while the car park works are underway. Commuters are advised to explore alternative travel arrangements.
All-day parking is also available at Seaford North Reserve, Railway Parade, close to Seaford Station.
The construction contract was awarded to Devco Project and Construction Management Pty Ltd at the 19 December 2016 Council meeting.
Site works are due to commence February 2017, with a likely 18 month duration (subject to weather and site conditions).
Council will liaise with sporting clubs at the Reserve to best accommodate their needs while the works are underway.
