Road works start as final stage of upgrades commence at Pepi’s Land 

Published: 27 October 2021

Road improvement works have commenced at the entrance of the Emerald Netball Club located at Pepi’s Land on Beaconsfield Emerald Road. 

These road works are the third and final stage of this $ 4.1 million council-funded project to provide a new netball pavilion which will include accessible change rooms, umpire change rooms, toilets inside and outside the building, office space, storage areas, a social area and kitchen, covered spectator areas and pedestrian paths. 

The Australian Government has contributed $200,000 towards the final stage of the works. 

The road works will improve access to the facility and will see the widening of Beaconsfield Emerald Road as well as the inclusion of a right-turn lane and left-turn slip lane into the entrance of the new pavilion. 

These works are expected to be completed in 2022.  

Cardinia Shire Mayor Councillor Brett Owen said he was delighted the project was entering its final stage. 

“This will provide the local community with a state-of-the art sports and leisure facility which will be a vital asset long into the future in providing and encouraging active and healthy lifestyle choices.” 

Federal Member for La Trobe MP Jason Wood said the road improvement works were the final stage of a fantastic sports and leisure facility which will serve as hub of activity in the local community for years to come. 

“It is with a sense of pride that I can acknowledge the contribution of Australian Government in providing funding for the last stage of this worthwhile community project. Once complete, a new netball pavilion and accessible change rooms which will benefit many users, particularly female players.  

I know how iconic Pepi’s land is locally, I’m sure that this project will be enthusiastically welcomed by the community!”
