Junction Oval, St Kilda
Welcome and thank you for seeking further information about the Victorian Cricket and Community Centre.
Continued warm weather during Melbourne's summer has allowed works to continue on schedule and budget.
Installation of a majority of internal partitions (walls and glazing) has now been completed. Floor finishes have been installed in key areas including the medical, high performance and indoor training centre areas.
The mechanical (air conditioning) plant and equipment has now been installed and commissioning works are nearing completion. External façade glazing facing the oval is now complete. Operational windows are available in several of the Media and Radio rooms on Level 3.
Construction of the gym area is complete and the majority of gym equipment is in situ and ready for functional use. Exterior metal panelling installed on the northern and eastern side of the building has oxidized well and achieved its desired rust color.
The outfield of Junction Oval has reached a very high visible standard and is now match-ready along with the centre wicket. Cricket Victoria is hoping to schedule matches in February in preparation for the JLT Sheffield Shield fixture between Victoria and New South Wales beginning on March 3.
Corporate microwave internet/network connectivity installation has been completed. Fibre-optic cable installation and commissioning is now underway and expected to be operational with 5 - 10 business days.
Artificial turf and nets have now been installed within the indoor cricket training area. High-speed bio mechanic review cameras will be installed in coming weeks which will assist players in their training preparation.
The internal and seating refurbishment of the Blackie Ironmonger Stand is now complete. New stair access to the stand is currently under construction and once completed the stand will be fully functional.
Male and female home team changing rooms have been completed. Swimming pools have been installed and waterproofing and tiling works are currently in progress.
