NEW PLYMOUTH, TARANAKI, NZ
Yarrow Stadium Taranaki
Yarrow Stadium is being redeveloped to ensure its stands meet earthquake standards and the venue remains fit for purpose in the post-COVID era. The project has a $50m budget, of which $30m is being funded by ratepayers. The remaining $20m is being covered by a Government grant under the ‘shovel-ready’ economic stimulus package to kick-start work on major projects. The venue’s two grandstands were declared earthquake-prone and closed in 2017 and 2018. The $50m repair and refurbishment project was approved in 2019 and subsequently reviewed and modified to allow for the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
