Donnelly Fields will soon be under lights after Gunnedah Shire Council awarded the contract for the supply and installation of lighting to REES Electrical Pty Ltd in December. The $770,000 project will be fully-funded by Gunnedah Shire Council after the need for lighting was identified in Council’s Community Strategic Plan and the Riverine Landscape Masterplan. The project involves the installation of six, 30 metre high lighting poles with the entire playing area expected to be under light. The construction phase of the project is approximately 20 weeks, with work to upgrade the current electrical supply scheduled to commence in February 2018. The project is expected to be completed by July 2018.
