Ballinger Park Buderim
Construction works at Ballinger Park Sports Complex is now underway.
Work includes traffic calming at the sports complex entrance, tree planting, drainage upgrades and installation of a pedestrian crossing and bollards.
Replacement of culverts, re-profiling of the drainage swale and eco-blanket and planting of embankments will improve overall stormwater management at the park.
Temporary road closures and traffic management will be required at times during construction and your patience is appreciated. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed in October ready for a busy summer of local sport.
