The Flynn Recreation Reserve is a hub of activity with the slab laid and the framework in place for the new Flynn Hall.
Local MP Darren Chester visited the site to see the new frame and work taking place.
“Work officially commenced at the site at the end of October and Traralgon based construction company Langden Constructions have wasted no time getting the frame in place,” Mr Chester said.
“The new hall will be the centrepiece of work at the Recreation Reserve and provide the community with a modern and accessible gathering space.
“This project is one that the community have advocated for for a long time and to see such progress is exciting.”
Mr Chester said the recreation reserve would also receive upgraded facilities with new tennis courts, car parking and public amenities.
“The tender process is now underway for the construction of the tennis courts and auxiliary works will also be completed to compliment the new hall,” Mr Chester said.
“Gippslanders have had a challenging few years and this project is just one way the Federal Government is improving community infrastructure while keeping locals in jobs and helping to stimulate the economy.
“I look forward to seeing further progress and seeing the lasting benefits this new facility will bring to the wider community.”
The Federal Government is providing $1.2 million through its Drought Communities Program. More than $800,000 for the rebuild of the hall and $450,000 for auxiliary works to Flynn Recreation Reserve facilities.
