Running Track a Go for Deception Bay
Luke Howarth MP has announced $1.5M to build a synthetic running track in Deception Bay.
The announcement comes after Luke Howarth MP, Deception Bay Little Athletics President Adam White and the local community rallied together to petition for the funding.
Luke Howarth MP confirmed “this funding is not an election commitment – it’s locked in funding and a massive win for our community”.
“I’ve been working hard to make this happen for Deception Bay because there will be so many benefits.
“This is great news for local tourism, local schools, our rising and future sport stars from all around the region and of course the Deception Bay Little Athletics community.
“When built, this will be the only community-managed running track in our region, with the closest being about an hour’s drive away.”
Luke Howarth MP is calling on the State Government and Moreton Bay Regional Council to invest a further $1M into the project to pay for fencing, nets and other facilities to support the track.
