A principal contractor as well as 28 local subcontractors have been appointed to deliver the $25.9 million East Shores 1B project in Gladstone, Queensland. The project is anticipated to create more than 300 jobs.

“East Shores Stage 1B will not only create an entertainment and tourism hub for Gladstone, it will also provide a much needed injection for the region’s economy and businesses,” Member for Gladstone Glenn Butcher said.

Key features of East Shores 1B include a waterfront cafe, a cruise passenger interface and an amphitheatre.
