    Manningham Council has appointed contractor Commercial Industrial Construction Group (CICG) Pty Ltd to construct the new $19.6 million Mullum Mullum Stadium at Mullum Mullum Reserve in Donvale.

    The state of the art, new regional facility will cater for a wide range of sports including basketball, netball badminton, table tennis, volleyball, and is anticipated that more than 200,000 people will use the stadium each year.

    Construction is set to commence in September on the multi-use stadium, which is expected to open its doors in the first half of 2018.

    Manningham Mayor Cr Paul McLeish said the new stadium will offer broad ranging benefits to the Manningham community and the eastern region.

    “With five courts, seating for up to 500 spectators, a cafe and club administration facilities, the new stadium will be one of the premier sporting facilities in the eastern region.”

    “While the new stadium will go a long way to address the shortage of sports courts in Manningham, equally important is the long term investment by Council in the health and sporting future of our community,” he said.

    Earlier this year, the Victorian Government announced a $650,000 contribution to the new stadium.

    In announcing the grant, Member for Eastern Metropolitan Region, Shaun Leane, said; “Everyone loves their sport in Manningham and this fabulous project will mean participants of all abilities will be able to strut their stuff at a facility they can be proud of.”

    Cr McLeish said Council is also actively seeking $2 million in grant funding from the Commonwealth.

    "We have an outstanding project of regional significance in Mullum Mullum Stadium and we call on the Commonwealth Government to also show support by making a financial commitment to this premium sporting facility.”

    The successful tenderer, CICG demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of the scope of the project and a strong willingness to work co-operatively with Council in its delivery. CICG has completed projects similar in nature across Victoria.

    Works to improve the pedestrian and cycling paths, car parking and landscaping at Mullum Mullum Reserve are now complete.

    The $1.5 million works to upgrade the reserve were completed as part of the first stage of implementation of the Mullum Mullum Reserve Management Plan and included:

    • Upgrading the existing reserve car park
    • Widening the Springvale Road and Reynolds Road entrances to the reserve
    • Constructing a new roundabout that will also allow access to the future stadium
    • New pedestrian paths throughout the reserve and along Springvale Road
    • A new shared cycling and walking path to connect to the Mullum Mullum Trail
    • Extensive landscaping within the reserve
    • The construction of prototype stormwater treatment rain gardens in collaboration with Melbourne Water.

    A range of utility services were also installed to service the future Mullum Mullum Stadium.

    These management plan works have been implemented in advance of the stadium construction to reduce the impact to users of the reserve.

    The management plan works have been funded by Council, with grants from Melbourne Water ($60,000) and the Victorian Taxi Directorate ($62,067), enabling the installation of stormwater treatment raingardens and two taxi drop off bays within the reserve

    The next stage of the management plan implementation at the reserve is the installation of a new electrical substation in the coming weeks and new public lighting later this year.
