The artificial grass and rubber tracks for the Joaquin Enriquez Memorial Grandstand are expected to arrive from Germany next month.

This was revealed by Engr. Shadimar Jalaidi, DPWH-9 Project Engineer, who confirmed the arrival of the materials by September in Manila.

The artificial grass will be used for the grandstand’s soccer field while the rubber tracks will be used for the track and field oval.

The late arrival of the materials were said to have contributed greatly to the delay in grandstand construction.

The artificial grass covers 12% of the project while the rubber covers 29% of the sports complex.

The areas where the materials will be placed have reportedly been prepared weeks before.

A period of 45 days is still needed to be able to install the materials, said Jalaidi.  (RGAAGo)
