Installation of the steel frame at Wagga Wagga’s new multi-purpose stadium commenced
this week, marking another milestone in the construction project.

Located at the Wagga Wagga Exhibition Centre, the $9M multi-purpose stadium will
provide a high-quality sporting, community and entertainment/event space in the heart of
the city.

A 50-tonne crane has been on site this week to erect the eight, 10-metre high structural
steel columns that form part of the frame of the stadium. The columns will be secured to
the concrete slab which was poured with 400 cubic metres of concrete in three stages.

Next week, the mezzanine level walls of the stadium are scheduled to take shape when
precast panels are installed onto the steel column frame.

Wagga Wagga City Council’s Director, Commercial Operations, Caroline Angel said the
project, being completed by Zauner Constructions, is moving ahead to schedule.

“We’ve been lucky with favourable weather since February. The project is progressing well
and it’s positive to see the stadium taking shape with the steel columns in place,” she said.

The MPS will feature three indoor courts, change rooms, seating for more than 600
spectators and a function space with catering facilities.

The MPS is a collaborative project with funding support of $4.4M received from the
Federal Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund and $250,000 from Netball
