Completion of a new road in Dockyard will give better access to Morseby Plain, an area where preparations for next year’s America’s Cup are continuing.

Cup teams will eventually be able to use part of the field for long-term storage.

Ireland Island Sports Club currently use the Plain for games and the 300-yard long road will also offer safer access to a facility which will be used long after the America’s Cup finishes.

The work was carried out by Dynamic Excavating and Landscaping and Horsefield Landscaping, both local contractors.

Andrew Dias, General Manager, Wedco, said: “The America’s Cup has served as the motivation to complete this project now. The new road will remove many of the limitations that have prevented the field from being used for large events in the past. We are thrilled to have completed this project, as it will benefit both the America’s Cup and Dockyard.”

Work on the site for the America’s Cup Event Village continues in the South Basin with sheet piles presently being installed to create the outer wall of the infill which will created approximately 9 acres of new land.
