STEVE Doszpot says the Canberra Liberals have announced a $550,000 investment to upgrade facilities at Greenway Oval.

“Greenway Oval has been in need of significant upgrades for some time so the facility can continue to cater for families in the Tuggeranong Valley,” Steve said.

“Today’s commitment will help many sporting clubs including the Tuggeranong Football Club, Tuggeranong Valley Bushrangers, and ACT Gridiron.

“We will work with these sporting clubs and all users of Greenway Oval to examine the growing needs of the facility and the best possible upgrades that can be delivered with this funding commitment.”

“The community has raised concerns with me about inadequate grandstand, change and shower rooms, coaches’ and media boxes, storage, cleaning and canteen facilities, and access for people with a disability,” Nicole Lawder said.

“These concerns have gone unaddressed for too long and I’m proud to be part of a team that is listening to the community and wants to deliver adequate local services.

“Upgrading local community facilities is an important part of our commitment to give Canberrans the local services they deserve,” Ms Lawder concluded.

John Glenn, Chairman of a Joint Committee representing the interests of the three major users of the Greenway Oval said that the users welcomed and fully supported the initiative of the Liberal Party to provide funds for this essential work.

“This is further evidence of the strong support of the Liberals to the youth of Canberra and to sporting pursuits generally,” Mr Glenn said.
