Knights Centre of Excellence

Located on the corner of Bavin and Perth Road, Broadmeadow, NSW. Previously the area has been utilized for cricket and junior Rugby League matches but in recent years it has been rarely used as a consequence of it becoming waterlogged after rain events due to inadequate site grading and drainage. 

The project involves the construction of 3 full-size Rugby League fields, 2 mini fields along with 2 private and 1 public carpark and the upgrade of existing Bavin Road.
