Construction work on the Harness Racing New South Wales Menangle Park training centre has 
commenced.

The site was given the all clear after obtaining an Aboriginal Heritage Impact Permit - an ongoing 
process that took more than 12 months revealing more than 320 artefacts in the archaeological 
excavation.

Tenders for the earthworks, as well as the construction of the new intersection off Menangle Road, are about to be finalised with work to start in September.

Other ancillary utilities for the multi-million dollar facility include a veterinary clinic, a produce store, 
a water walker and an administration centre to go with the 400 permanent stables on site.

On the 40-hectare parcel of land will also be a 1000m training track as well as day-paddocks. 

“Whilst it may seem this project is all ‘talk’, the detailed processes including importantly 
Campbelltown City Council and the Roads and Maritime Services approval take time,” New South 
Wales Harness Racing Club chief executive John Dumesny explained.

“Rex Horne, Sam Nati and project consultant Michael Brown, have had countless meetings with as 
many as 100 potential suppliers, contractors, consultants, utility providers and Government agencies 
since the DA was approved in April by Council.

“It is now all systems go and participants will see changes to the landscape in coming weeks.”

For further information telephone NSWHRC Chief Executive John Dumesny on 0438 398 210.
