Progress on North Queensland Stadium, the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys' new home from 2020, is continuing in Townsville apace!

The next major milestone for the project is the completion of the concourse concrete pour for the main concourse for the Western, Southern and Eastern stands.

The Department of Housing and Public Works (HPW) is leading the delivery of the North Queensland Stadium project.

The centrally located 25,000 seat, best-practice, multi-purpose, regional stadium will be built in time for the start of the 2020 NRL season.

The footage taken Friday 12 October 2018 shows the grandstands really starting to take shape.

Concrete decks for the main concourse are complete in the western and southern stands and progressing well in the eastern stand. Ground level concrete slabs are also being prepared and poured in the three stands.

Steel rackers (the skeleton of the seating bowl) and the concrete seating platforms that the seats will be fixed onto are being installed in the western stand.
