Business case for passenger rail

Horsham City Oval upgrades

If elected to government, the Liberal and Nationals Government will provide $5 million to help transform Horsham City Oval into a modern multi-use community asset for generations to come.

HRCC’s vision to redevelop Horsham City Oval is part of the broader City to River Masterplan.

Projects include the expansion of the playing field, a new multi-purpose pavilion and clubrooms and covered spectator areas would be built along with a second netball court.
