Eagle Farm Update

Friday, 1st September 2017

Racing Queensland contractors are close to finalising the tenders for the supply of sand and turf for the remediation of Eagle Farm race track. The Monteith report, handed down this month, recommended a major refurbishment of the track including the total removal of the existing grass and thatch layer and re-blending the profile to include angular sand types to improve stability. The tender period for the construction elements concludes this week with assessment to begin on the submissions next week. Meanwhile, Brisbane Racing Club has performed preliminary work on the track, removing the running rail and mowing the grass as low as possible while removing clippings and debris to prepare for the removal of the top 70ml of the surface. Work is expected to begin after the construction tender is awarded. The time-line for completion remains the end of April, 2018.
