Work on WCE Training, Administration and Community Centre to begin
Perkins Builders have recently been appointed as the main building contractor for the construction of the new West Coast Eagles Training, Administration and Community Facility at Lathlain Park.
Construction on the site has started, with some forward works happening over the past week. Within the next few weeks, construction will begin in earnest.
Sod-turning and works update
Both Oval 1 and Oval 2 continue to develop as the turf establishes critical root structure. With a well-earned rest after the 2017 WAFL season, the turf on Oval 1 will strengthen over the coming summer months. With Oval 2 reaching full coverage, the Demons will be able to share the load on both ovals as the grass is nursed through to maturity.
Zone 3 update
Forward works - Ovals
Work is progressing on the two ovals that form the centrepiece of the Lathlain Park redevelopment.
Stage one of Scouts Building complete
The Town and Scouts are pleased to announce that stage one of Zone 8 is complete and has included:
More Rayment Park works completed
It has been all systems go at Rayment Park and a host of works have recently been completed.
Toilet block installed and basketball area upgrade
The toilet block has been installed and is waiting for the completion of the sewer line which commenced last week.
The basketball area has been repainted and the lines re-marked, with a new backboard to be installed in the coming weeks.
Zone 7 update
An independent road safety audit was recently undertaken for Bishopsgate Street (Goddard Street to Roberts Road/Miller Street Street Roundabout) where major interface works with West Coast Eagles facilities are planned. This was undertaken as part of the Metro Central Joint Development Assessment Panel's approval of the West Coast Eagles' development application.
Splash of colour for Scouts Building
A collaboration between the Town of Victoria Park, the Lathlain Scouts and Girl Guides and local artist Daek Williams has resulted in a vibrant and eye-catching new mural being painted on the front of the Scouts Building in Lathlain.
Goal net installation and Jacaranda relocation
The nets have been installed behind the goals on Oval 1, with the help of a crane. This will help stop any footballs from straying too far from the boundary of the oval.
