A surface drainage system from ACO Polycrete was installed at the E.S. Marks Athletics Field, a significant and historical venue in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The NSW State Government provided the funding to remove and replace the old synthetic track surface and underlay to IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federation) guidelines. The associated surface drainage system also needed to comply with the guideline’s tight construction track tolerances.

Designers selected ACO’s Sport System 4000 with slotted Polycrete covers for the project. This linear precast modular drainage system can be installed early in the track’s construction phase and provides key datum points for subsequent stages.

Other ACO products used in this project included ACO Access galvanised steel access covers.
