Stadion MOSiR w Ostrołęce – design description
How did the redevelopment of the Ostroleka stadium happen?
At the end of October 2021, it was announced that funds had been granted from the government's Polski Ład (Polish Deal) fund for the redevelopment of MOSiR Stadium in Ostrołęka, making it possible to modernise the outdated municipal facility. The final cost of the investment is not yet known, but the funding, which will amount to PLN 22.5 million, is expected to make up a significant part of the amount needed for the task (the missing sum will be provided by the city).
The tender procedure was announced at the end of May 2022. The scope of work has been divided into three stages, the first of which will involve the construction of a new football pitch, the second will involve, above all, the construction of a new stand, and the third stage will involve the construction of a new athletics track. Work is due to start in the summer of 2022 and the contractor will be given two years to complete the investment, with the first stage to be finalised before the end of 2022.
What will the Ostrołęka stadium look like after reconstruction?
The project involves a complete reconstruction of Ostrołęka stadium. The existing main stand, located on the western side, will be demolished and a new covered stand will be built on the opposite side. The running track around the pitch will receive a brand-new blue tartan surface. It will have six tracks (eight on the main straight - interestingly, according to the initially presented visuals, the main straight line will be on the opposite side to the new stand).
The stadium will feature areas for long jump, high jump, pole vault and triple jump, as well as facilities for the shot put, discus, hammer and javelin throw, and a water trench for steeplechase. The venue is expected to receive a positive opinion from the Polish Athletics Association (PZLA) before being put into use. The stadium will be equipped with four floodlight masts and a digital scoreboard.
The project will also include backstage facilities, a sewage system and a sound system. The modification of the area around the stadium will include the fencing of the area, the construction of new access roads, pavements and car parks, as well as the arrangement of greenery.
