Inter River Park turf field preloading

We are building a new full-size artificial turf field (ATF) in Inter River Park that will meet tournament standards, and increase the sports field availability in the park.

Because the site for the new field was previously a landfill and therefore prone to uneven settling, we must first compress the fill and prepare the site for construction by 'preloading' it with approximately 72,500 tonnes of sand, which will remain for up to two years.

Starting October 7, 2019, preparation for preloading will begin and take approximately two months to complete.
