It's been a scene of busy workers and tough trucks for over 12 months now, with another milestone about to be reached in the construction of the North Queensland Stadium.
Mayor Jenny Hill and Townsville MP Scott Stewart are excited to announce that the installation of the first seating platforms will happen today.
When completed the venue will host 7,000 more seats than the current home of the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys.
Council announced in 2017 that 750 families will benefit from the design and construction of the North Queensland Stadium.
The overall cost of the entertainment venue will be $250 million.
Population size, attendance rates at the current stadium, projected attendance rates for the new venue, construction costs, and more factors were all taken into consideration for the construction of the North Queensland Stadium.
