It will provide modern infrastructure for the site, including a linking boulevard, fencing, landscaping, playgrounds,signage, car parks, traffic signals and supporting works.

The project will include construction of five new football fields, a new synthetic hockey pitch and athletics track, and eight new netball courts, together with upgrades to existing multipurpose fields.
