Stadium repairs on track

Social Share

Work on relaying?the track is well underway at the National Stadium.
Almost a month after work started at the Waterford, St Michael venue, all of the trademark blue and yellow material has disappeared.
The infield remains intact, but trenches have been dug in the shot put/pole vault, high jump/javelin and long jump/triple jump sectors.
When MIDWEEKSPORT photographer Kenmore Bynoe visited the area recently, workmen were deepening the trench in the pole vault and shot put areas, while yellow caution tape had been strung along the length of the long jump run-up.
Before the track can be relaid, a drainage system has to be installed.
In a recent update, Minister of Sports Stephen Lashley said the track should be ready for the start of the 2013 athletics season. (SAT)
