The columns are up and the trusses are all in place, and the enormity of the new Central West Equestrian and Livestock Centre is all the more palpable than it was only months ago as just a series of markers on the ground.

The next part of the project is installing the 4,500 square metres of cladding.

That cladding will cover the south west corner of the facility and over the large 80 metre by 50 metre roof.

Blayney mayor Scott Ferguson said that the structure was the largest part of the $2.2 million project and it was already drawing attention.

"Bookings are currently at about fifty per cent of the weekends for 2020 and it's not even finished yet," he said.

The centre is funded by the NSW government's Regional Growth Environment and Tourism Fund.
