We cannot say that Novogrudok lacks sports facilities and playgrounds . Nevertheless, it does really lack a modern large sports complex. The dreams of Novogrudok residents will come true – the construction of a sports complex for team sports in Novogrudok in Drozdovich street is planned to begin in November 2018.
The construction of such a large-scale facility is not fast and very expensive. But, despite the existing difficulties, the management of the district has found an opportunity to build it. The customer is the Department of capital construction (UKS) of Novogrudok district.
— The sports complex will include a swimming pool of 25×13 m on five tracks and a universal gym of 42×24 m with basketball, handball, volleyball and mini – football grounds, with the bleachers for 751 spectators, — says the head of the UKS of Novogrudok district Alexander SKOBLYA. — The total area of the pool is 1303,9 sq. m., sports hall-4457,8 sq. m. capacity of the pool-58 people per shift, sports hall-48 people. In the sports complex there will be a room for wrestling for 40 people, a gym for fitness and aerobics for 20 people, a gym with exercise equipment for 20 people and changing rooms with showers. There will be a buffet with a hall for 30 seats. There is Parking equipment for cars (with Parking spaces for disabled people) and ramps for disabled people. The total space of the land plot is 19073.49 cubic meters.
The place for a sports complex is not chosen at random. Drozdovich St. is the most densely populated part of the town where many young families live. There are bus stops nearby, so residents of other Novogrudok neighborhoods who do not have personal vehicles will also be able to get to the complex easily.
– A regional unitary designing enterprise «Institute Grodnograzhdanproekt» was engaged in drafting the complex, – said A. Scoble. — Design and budget documentation for construction has already passed the examination. The construction is scheduled to begin in November 2018.
The head of the financial Department of the Executive Committee Zhanna Lazovik explained the following: the construction of the sports complex will be financed by income from the sale of bonds issued by the Novogrudok District Executive Committee.
A number of issues are to be solved before the construction of this long-awaited facility begins. But the first big step has been made and it is already known-the sports complex in Novogrudok will be!
