North Queensland Stadium kick-starts jobs and growth for Townsville
Planning for Townsville’s $250 million North Queensland Stadium is underway.
The centrally-located, state-of-the-art, 25,000 seat stadium will kick-start the revitalisation of the city’s central business district, attract further investment into the region and generate growth.
It’s also expected to generate up to 750 jobs throughout the design and construction stages. Longer term, the project is anticipated to boost regional growth in the construction, tourism, retail, commercial and hospitality industries.
Construction is expected to start late next year and completed in time for the 2020 NRL season.
The Queensland Government has been running a series of dedicated information sessions that will expand opportunities for local companies to win and conduct work on this and other North Queensland projects.
