City officials say the construction of Fort St. John’s Enerplex is more or less on schedule, despite problems with the speedskating oval’s safety padding. Earlier reports suggested that the initial design of the oval failed to account for competition-regulation safety padding, which would take up four feet of space. Architecture-Engineering firm Field, Field & Field of Grande Prairie’s current design only allots approximately one foot of space for padding. Although the city hasn’t come up with a definite solution to the space limitations, Project Representative Dave Wilkinson says that the city has several options before them for review, and that construction will continue despite the snag.
