(2) Is the Government aware the nets are worn and have holes, on the side and the roof, the size of cricket balls.
(3) Will the Government replace the nets; if so, when; if not, why not.
(4) Will the Government repaint the markings on the floor of the nets given the markings on the ground have worn off.
Ms Berry: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
(1) Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) Sport and Recreation facilities conduct bi-monthly inspection of all ACT Sportsground assets under their management. Officers consider the safety and utility of sportsgrounds assets and conduct, or program repairs and maintenance as required.
(2) TCCS is in the process of redesigning the way that cricket nets are constructed to mitigate issues that may occur during normal use. Following the completion of this work, cricket assets which require maintenance or repair will be prioritised for attention.
(3) Priority and timing of repairs or replacement works will be determined after the above-mentioned redesign process is completed and in light of seasonal sporting demand.
(4) TCCS will assess the requirements for line markings at the Amaroo and Moncrieff cricket nets and take appropriate action prior to the commencement of the 2021/22 cricket season.
