It's full steam ahead for Pukekura Park's controversial cricket nets. Yesterday New Plymouth District Council parks manager Mark Bruhn said earthworks for the nets would start early next month and would be finished by the end of April.site where Pukekura Park's controversial cricket nets are set to be constructed.

The cricket nets caused a stir late last year after councillors originally decided against funding their share at a cost of $325,000. But 17 days later councillors voted eight to six to pay $212,500 towards the $425,000 Fillis St cricket practice nets after the TSB Community Trust offered to cover half the costs.

The first part of the project involves digging out and removing existing soil, installing drainage and irrigation sprinklers, and laying a new base and clay surface.

Mr Bruhn said the groundworks of the project were specific to the site and while Whitaker Civil Engineering Ltd was developing the subsurface, "our own Pukekura Park groundsman will develop and manage the turf itself so that it matches the conditions on the sportsground".

The second stage is the construction of the actual nets and their design is still being finalised.
