Time is running out to complete much-needed resurfacing work on Newtown Park’s synthetic track before a crucial athletics meeting is set to take place. Kiwi Athletics Club president Peter Jack says while the park’s grass has been resewn for field events without any issues, the synthetic track has been required to be replaced after a previous new surface began bubbling up only a season after it was laid in 2015. “They [contractors] had to redo the athletics track and the all-weather surface for jumping events as well as the eight-lane track,” he says. “They guaranteed for the entire track.

to the fantastic weather Wellington experienced in December, Peter is concerned that it might not be ready in time for the annual Capital Classic meeting on January 20. Not only is it one of the biggest events of the athletics calendar in Wellington, this year it doubles as a trial for the Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast later in the year, and will feature top local stars like middle-distance runner Hamish Carson. “I’m pretty confident we won’t have to move it, but Athletics NZ said if they do it might have to be held in Auckland,” Peter says. “Masterton has an all-purpose track but I don’t know if it can handle such an event.” Council sports turf manager Peter Hemsley was not available this week to confirm when the track resurfacing would be completed.
