Preliminary works commence today on the brand new $25 million Orange Sports Precinct thanks to the NSW Government.

Deputy Premier John Barilaro said the NSW Government is delivering on its election commitment to provide brand new sporting infrastructure to the people of Orange with geotechnical engineers today drilling the first holes in the ground to commence construction.

Last year I stood up in Orange and promised a $25 million sports precinct for the community, and today we are delivering on that promise and putting shovels in the ground,” Mr Barilaro said.

I am proud to announce that preliminary work has officially begun on the purpose-built facility which will include cricket and multipurpose ovals, an athletic field and track with covered seating and a rugby union and league field with grandstand and seating mounds to sit 8,500 fans.

Mr Farraway said the NSW Nationals in Government made this commitment at the election and have stayed true to their word.

“The NSW Nationals in Government have delivered on their promise and today commenced preliminary work to make this $25 million sporting dream a reality, right here in Orange,” Mr Farraway said.

“The delivery of this election commitment will drive business, tourism and dollars directly into the Central West.”

The NSW Government is investing $25 million for the Orange Sports Precinct, Orange City Council will deliver the project and Council aims to have the first stage of the project complete by late 2021 with the main field and grandstand due to be completed by 2022.
