The Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning (DSDMIP) is leading the delivery of the North Queensland Stadium project, the new home of the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys from 2020.
The centrally located 25,000 seat, best-practice, multi-purpose, regional stadium will be built in Townsville, in time for the start of the 2020 NRL season.
This Watpac drone footage from Friday 20 July 2018 shows great progress with the concrete decks of the western and southern stands. These decks will form part of the stadium's concourse and will allow patrons to walk the full 600m circumference of the stadium while taking in views of the field of play. Substructure work on the eastern stand is progressing well too.
North Queensland Stadium is a joint project of the Queensland Government, Australian Government and Townsville City Council and is supported by both the National Rugby League and the North Queensland Cowboys. The stadium forms part of the Townsville City Deal signed in December 2016.
