Track soon ready, but not facility


Share post:

THE?Ryan Brathwaite track will soon be finished but it won’t be hosting any meets in the near future.
Director of sports at the Cave Hill Campus, Roland Butcher, told WEEKENDSPORT: “It won’t be long before the track is completed, but there is quite a lot more work that needs to be done on that facility before it is in operation. At the moment it is very much a work in progress.”
Stands have to be built, more lighting has to be installed and facilities for the public have not been completed.
The eight-lane track had been touted as an alternative venue for meets while work continues at the National Stadium.
Butcher could not give a ballpark date for when work on the track and surrounding facilities was due to be completed.
“We don’t have a definite date,” he said. “Soon the work on the track will be finished, but that is only part of the work.
“When we have the use of it, it will be fairly limited. It will not be in a position to hold meets and so on because it is still a building site, as you can see.” (SAT)
