It is good to see progress at The Hagley Oval. After all the debate and a fair bit of dust as the embankment was literally trucked in, we are seeing a fine cricket oval taking shape. The interesting thing from my perspective, is that it is not as easy to see as you might think!
The grass covered mound is very unobtrusive when viewed from Riccarton Ave and the new buildings look as if they are going to blend in very nicely with the surrounding landscape.
This will be the first major post earthquake project to be completed in the city and those responsible for seeing it through, deserve a lot of credit for all of the hard work being done.
I suspect that once the job is complete and the cricket is underway this city will embrace the Hagley Oval as a beautiful, importance and appropriate piece of the city's infrastructure.
