Three shortlisted contractors to build $250m North Queensland Stadium announced


Posted by Monica Gameng

Three construction companies have been shortlisted to build the $250 million North Queensland Stadium in Townsville.

CPB Contractors, Watpac Construction and Lendlease Building has been invited to submit tenders for the project’s managing contractor role.

“These three have Townsville office with a track record of delivering on major projects in North Queensland and, most importantly, they all have impressive strategies to make sure local businesses get every opportunity to be involved in the project.

“We are right on schedule to appoint one of these three by early April and have early works underway in the second half of 2017,” said State Development Minister Dr Anthony Lynham.

 According to Treasurer Curtis Pitt, the project is expecting to create up to 750 jobs, open business opportunities for the region and revitalise the Townsville CBD.

“We promised to end years of economic instability under the LNP by delivering local jobs and creating local opportunities – and we are delivering on that promise,” Mr Pitt said.

Member for Thuringowa Aaron Harper said that the project’s design team is working closely with key stakeholders – including Townsville City Council, the NRL, Stadiums Queensland and the North Queensland Cowboys – for the delivery of the stadium’s detailed design which is due to be revealed by September.
