Php18-M rehab of Iloilo Sports Complex completed

The rehabilitation of the Iloilo Sports Complex worth Php18 million is now finished.

Provincial administrator Raul Banias said that the rubberizing of the track oval and lane painting was completed on December 12.

“Fortunately, our contractor with consultants from Taiwan and from Great Britain, has delivered the materials and finished the rubberized track oval,” Banias said.

Also, the grass of the football field which was changed to another type of Bermuda grass from the United Stated of America (USA) has been continually taken cared of for the grass to further mature.

“Ideally, after one more month, the football field will be ready to be used for football competitions,” Banias said.

The completion of the track oval is also timely for the conduct of integrated meet next week.

Another major improvement in the sports complex is the construction of football stadium lights slated first quarter of 2016.

Banias said that they are now looking for appropriate contractors who are experts in designing and building lights to undergo a competitive bidding process.

“Whoever will get the contract, they will design and install the football lights,” Banias said.

The four high posts LED lights will comply with the lighting requirements of night football competitions.

After the integrated meet this December, the play courts that include the basketball court, volleyball court and tennis court will also be rehabilitated in 2016.

“After all these rehabilitation and improvement, our playing grounds are up to the international standard already,” Banias said.

Further, Banias said that Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. is would like the dressing and rest rooms at the sports complex be of international standards.

“It is already included in the line- up and we hope to get funding for that in 2016,” Banias added. [via PNA. Image credits: PA Raul Banias]
