Thanks to the diggers/informants out there who found this stuff, great work. This link has a whole bunch of preliminary/standard info on the work going ahead. But here it is below, with a picture, to save you the time/bandwidth. But first, a picture.
State Sports Facilities project
The State Government has committed over $50 million to the State Sports Facilities project which will deliver new and improved facilities at Lakeside Oval and Albert Park for sporting clubs and the wider community. Lakeside Oval will provide a new home for athletics in Victoria with the development of facilities for training and competition at all levels, as well as administration facilities for Athletics Victoria.
The 1926 heritage grandstand will be restored under this project and become the new home of the Victorian Institute of Sport. This project will also support the current tenants of Lakeside Oval, the South Melbourne Football Club through improvements to soccer competition and administration facilities.
The project will:
redevelop Lakeside Oval to provide an international standard athletics track, improved facilities for South Melbourne Football Club and new administration spaces for athletics and the Victorian Institute of Sport
improve training and competition fields for touch football, soccer and other users in Albert Park
