Work on stadium to continue soon

first_imgWork will get underway on stage two of the facility which includes the main grand stand.This follows the signing last week between the Government and Curtain Bros for the Private Public Partnership agreement and contract for stadium.Sports Minister Justin Tkatchenko thanked Curtain Bros for coming on board with the National Government for building this iconic stadium.He said in the meantime the facilities will still be used as the construction goes along.The facility will be a premier stadium with eight restaurants, a huge convention centre, a leagues club, doctor’s facilities and will be the home of weightlifting.Curtain Bros will run and manage the stadium for 30 years and invest K60 million of their own funding into the project which is half of the contract value.This will allow the stadium to be professionally managed and operated in the best interest of all users and the public.“Past history has shown us governments cannot run or manage successfully our own facilities, so out sourcing to professionals is the only way to go,’’ the minister said.“We look forward to seeing stage two of the Hubert Murray Stadium completed by late next year,” he stated.last_img
