AN­OTHER mile­stone has been reached in the $ 40 mil­lion Jezzine Bar­racks rede­vel­op­ment in North Ward. Townsville con­trac­tors are set to in­crease their chances of win­ning work on the site through a work­shop to be held to­day. Townsville Mayor, Cr Les Tyrell said the Jezzine Bar­racks would stim­u­late the lo­cal econ­omy with the cre­ation of jobs. ‘‘ The de­vel­op­ment is ex­pected to cre­ate more than 200 jobs dur­ing con­struc­tion and add more than $ 11 mil­lion to pay pack­ets and we’re com­mit­ted to us­ing lo­cals wher­ever pos­si­ble,’’ he said. ‘‘ The Jezzine rede­vel­op­ment is a great op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal con­trac­tors and sup­pli­ers and we en­cour­age busi­nesses to get in­volved.’’ A free work­shop has been sched­uled to help Townsville com­pa­nies be­come part of the pro­ject.
