The North Queensland Stadium is on track to be built in time for the 2020 NRL Premiership Season, and with construction now well underway it is continuing to secure jobs for locals.

The best-practice, multi-purpose, regional stadium has been designed to encapsulate the North Queensland lifestyle, structurally proof against cyclonic weather and architecturally shaped like the leaf of a Pandanus plant.

At the same time, Council is upgrading adjoining parks and recreation areas. The new stadium will revitalise the CBD and has already helped attract to the precinct a proposed high-end hotel, supported by Double Tree by the Hilton.

But the stadium doesn’t just bring entertainment benefits to Townsville. A key objective of the project is to maximize employment and supply opportunities for locals. Check out the statistics below to find out how the project is creating jobs for locals.
