The installation for new LED field lights on cricket field number four at Ron Harborne Oval is set to commence on Monday, as part of a lighting upgrade project.
The cricket field will be closed for public use while the installation takes place, and will reopen at the end of August, weather permitting.
The lighting project is fully funded through the NSW government's Stronger Country Communities Fund which delivers local infrastructure projects that improve the quality of life for regional communities.
Moree Plains Shire Council's project and development manager Lila Fisher said Ron Harborne Oval is a premier multi-code, four-oval sporting facility, home to junior and senior competitions for cricket, netball, hockey and soccer servicing the Moree Plains.
"The new LED lighting and electrical upgrade project to Australia Standards will provide for greater and safer night time use of the facilities," she said.
"This is a great outcome for the sporting clubs which use Ron Harborne Oval and Moree generally. Not many towns of our size could lay claim to such an impressive and professional facility."
