Reason for works
In conjunction with AFL NSW & ACT, Council is carrying out an upgrade of Lincoln Oval Waratah Park.
Club Waratah is a new entity consisting of Miranda Bombers Jnr AFL Club and Southern Power AFL Club created to utilise the Lincoln Oval site. With the support of AFL NSW & ACT the amenities building has been upgraded to include new home change rooms, club rooms, canteen, and toilet facilities to a standard for use for representative AFL football and by the Swans Academy.
Scope of works
In addition to the recent investment by AFL and Club Waratah, Sutherland Shire Council’s component of the works include:
- Upgrade of the field lighting.
- Levelling and re turfing of the playing surface to meet 'Regional' standards.
- Installation of an irrigation system.
- Construction of pedestrian control fencing for the cycle track and provision of accessible paths.
- Minor landscaping works.

Major delays have been experienced during the delivery of the electrical works which have delayed the upgrade of the amenities building and the completion and commissioning of the lighting.
