Salisbury eyes $9 million sports hub at Bridgestone site

SPORTING GESTURE: Salisbury Mayor Gillian Aldridge
with Bridgestone Australian Ltd Group Chairman and
Managing Director Nobuyuki Mieno.

A $9 MILLION sporting hub with a synthetic running track is one of two options being considered for Salisbury's former Bridgestone factory site.

The other option is a $4.7 million complex, with two sports pitches but no running track.

A Salisbury Council committee this week endorsed feasibility studies on the two options.

The more expensive one would be funded in part by the sale of Rundle Park, Salisbury North, which is home to the Salisbury Athletics and Little Athletics clubs.

The clubs would move to the new complex.

That option also includes:
  • a central field for athletics and soccer;
  • a rugby league pitch;
  • a grass running track;
  • areas for cross country running and mountain bike tracks; flood lights, and;
  • a two-storey clubroom with social area, changerooms and gym.

The sale of Rundle Park would net the council about $3.1 million.

The rest of the cost would rely on a mix of council funding and grants from the State Government and sporting governing bodies.

The council was gifted part of the Bridgestone site, on Frost Rd, by the company after it closed the factory in 2009.

The council announced plans to create a sporting hub at the site last October.

At the time, Salisbury Athletics club said it was not interested in moving to the new hub unless it included a synthetic running track.

A final decision on the project is expected to take up to a year.
