Another big contract has been awarded for a major new addition coming for North Delta.
Just days after a recent official groundbreaking, council approved a contract of almost $987,000 for the North Delta track and field facility’s surface coatings.
The $4.8 million civil works component was awarded a couple of months ago and site works are well underway.
Next up was a contract for the installation of the surface coatings for the running track and tennis court.
The development of the new facility on 83 Avenue is comprised of several separate tenders including civil works, synthetic running surface and athletic equipment.
The provincial and federal governments recently announced the project, which is expected to cost $8 million, would get $5.8 million in combined funding
Delta entered into a lease agreement and track development agreement with the Delta School District for a portion of the site last year.
The project design includes an eight-lane, 400 metre rubberized track surface with lighting, seating, a natural turf infield, as well as other features such as two tennis courts with pickleball court markings and additional parking.
The parks and recreation department notes that, weather permitting, all track and field works are expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
