Following many months of planning and hard work, construction of the new outdoor sports facility has finally begun at New River College Lough Road. The Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) will be located on the south-eastern side of the Lough Road site, on land which has been unused since the construction of the new school building was completed in 2012.
ETC Sports Surfaces Ltd has been commissioned to undertake the work on the MUGA, which began during October half term and is currently scheduled to be finished by the end of December. The new facility, which will include a state-of-the-art floodlit 3G surface, will provide much-needed outdoor space for all New River College sites to use. It will also be available for use by the local community.
New River College would like to thank the staff and governors who worked so hard to make this new development happen. All staff and pupils are excited about the fantastic opportunities the new facility will provide.
