With works on the Seaford Road level crossing removal expected to be underway in the coming weeks, Council has secured a win for local sporting clubs currently occupying RF Miles Reserve.
Frankston City Council has been in discussions with the Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) in relation to use of RF Miles Reserve land for site set-up and storing construction vehicles during works, requiring both Seaford Cricket Club and Seaford Football Netball Club to temporarily relocate.
Mayor Colin Hampton said “Council’s strong advocacy has proved instrumental in securing $1.85 million from the Victorian Government for urgent works to be undertaken at Belvedere Reserve.”
“The funding will assist both clubs transitioning to their new temporary home by completing necessary upgrades such as new lighting and infrastructure improvements on the three ovals.”
“It doesn’t end there; we’ve also secured a $200,000 sponsorship deal from the LXRA over two years that will further assist both clubs during construction.”
“Council will continue in its commitment to ensuring the needs of residents and community groups are well represented in major projects such as the level crossing removals.”
