Moddex delivers accessway for Warragul soccer pitch

Baw Baw Shire Council was looking to upgrade the soccer field and surrounds at Baxter Park in Warragul with an advanced facility featuring a FIFA certified synthetic playing surface.

Additionally, the project required drainage, fencing, playing equipment and storage, accessible access ramp and stairs and compliant accessible car parking spaces.

The $2,144,427 project was fully funded by the Council and formed part of the Council’s 2020/21 Capital Works Program.

The new pitch was officially opened on Saturday 10 July 2021. While some work such as planting and landscaping is still underway, the upgraded synthetic pitch is now in use.

The first stage of the new synthetic pitch project included the following:

  • FIFA Certified synthetic playing surface including drainage
  • Moddex handrails & balustrades
  • Equipment and equipment storage area
  • Access ramp and stairs
  • Two accessible car parks
  • Planting out of the embankment area
