Today the Western Melbourne Group have announced that they have commenced the Wyndham City Stadium precinct’s early works.
This construction process entails the construction of the site’s haul road which will include the 15,000 capacity stadium, the training precinct, the second 5,000 capacity seater stadium, residential precincts with around 1,000 residencies to be built alongside commercial mixed-use development.
Construction commenced last week, with vehicles now in full swing within the first phase of development.
Jason Sourasis, Chairman of the Western Melbourne Group expressed his elation at the commencement of the project.
“This is a proud moment for WMG, the football club and the community who have been on this journey with us from the start,” Sourasis said.
“I am delighted that the first earth-moving vehicles are on site, we’re on our way now.
“Just to get to this point has been years of preparation and planning, and I’d like to thank our partner Wyndham City Council for their hard work and support.”
CEO of Western United, Chris Pehlivanis spoke upon the significance of the commencement of the early works, stating that it is “the biggest milestone for our club to date.”
“The best thing about our Western United community is their unwavering support and passion, this is a wonderful reward for all those who have been with us from the beginning,” said Pehlivanis.
“I’m excited. Get ready, from here on in, there will be plenty of moments to celebrate as we watch the precinct come to life with those on the journey with us – our loyal members, partners, footballers, staff, volunteers and fans.”
The multi-phase construction project will commence with the first phase which is estimated to take eight to twelve weeks to complete where the haul road is established in order to provide the site access to gas, electricity, internet, water and heavy vehicles to be transported to where the stadium will be built.
