More FM Arena closure for strengthening work
13th June 2019
Structural strengthening in the More FM arena will be done from mid-November 2019 and is expected to take about three months.
Steel bracing will be fitted to strengthen the building. A temporary covering will be used to protect the flooring while scaffolding is in place.
All three courts will be out of action while this work is being done therefore the More FM Arena will be completely closed until the work is completed. The timing has been chosen as this is the quietest time of the year for arena bookings.
Work on the main part of the building and amenities area is nearing completion and should be wrapped up by mid-June. The project has gone well so far and we appreciate people’s patience with the disruption.
Once all work is complete, the earthquake-prone building classification can be lifted. The project costs are within the $2 million budget.
