New media centre helps Manuka meet the test

A new permanent media centre will be built at the southern end of Manuka Oval in time for Canberra’s first cricket Test match in the 2018/19 season.

The design will meet International Cricket Council standards. It will also take into account key principles developed through consultation with the community.

These include the need for a high quality building to complement the heritage aspects of the precinct, and to incorporate easily accessible multi-purpose function spaces.
