Federal Member for Ballarat, Catherine King was today at Linton Oval along with representatives of the Carngham Linton Football Netball Club and Golden Plains Shire Council to confirm that $750,000 will be in next week’s Federal Budget to upgrade the playing surface.
“We are delivering on the promises that we made to communities during the election campaign.”
“Improving drainage for the playing surface is a vital upgrade. It means that the Linton Oval will be safe, reliable and can be used year round,” Ms King said.
As well as the oval upgrade at Linton, Ms King will also visit the Woady Yaloak Recreation Reserve where the Albanese Labor Government will be providing $500,000 to upgrade lighting for the oval and netball courts.
“Both of these projects are identified as priority projects by the Golden Plains Shire Council and will deliver substantial benefits to local sporting clubs and community groups,” Ms King said.
The Albanese Government is delivering $3.2 million for community infrastructure projects across the Ballarat Electorate in the October Budget.
In addition to these two projects, the Budget will also include $350,000 towards the construction of the Maude Pavilion project, $750,000 towards Stage Two of the Doug Lindsay Recreation Reserve, $365,000 for the Mineral Springs Reserves Development Program and $500,000 towards the Glenlyon Recreation Reserve Pavilion.
“I am proud to deliver these important projects, that will leave a lasting benefit across our region,” Ms King said.
