Construction started this week with the new train station set to be operational before the end of the year. Even WIN TV and the Bendigo Addy were there to capture the occasion!

Ducon Maintenance is proud to be a part of the new upgrades at Sandown Park grey-hound racing facility. The team met with Premier of Victoria and Minister for Racing Denis Napthine last Sunday to show him around the start of our works. Dr Napthine has announced a $1.86 million upgrade of patrons’ facilities at Sandown Park, and said Sandown Park was vital to the ongoing success of Victorian greyhound racing and the upgrades would improve the experience for patrons at the iconic venue.
