Firms land sta­dium jobs

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

TWO lo­cal busi­nesses have been con­tracted to in­stall tem­po­rary fenc­ing and de­mol­ish on- site sheds and struc­tures to make way for Townsville’s new CBD sta­dium.

TFH Hire Ser­vices will build the tem­po­rary fenc­ing while Mark­well De­mo­li­tions will take down build­ings.

State De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter An­thony Lyn­ham said the project was on sched­ule ahead of the of­fi­cial sod- turn­ing cer­e­mony on Au­gust 18.

“Lo­cals will see that ac­tiv­i­ties on site are well un­der way with site com­paction test­ing, tem­po­rary set­tle­ment tri­als to de­ter­mine how the ground re­acts to im­posed loads, prepa­ra­tions for de­mo­li­tion of the sheds and struc­tures on the site, and the dis­tinc­tive site fenc­ing,” Mr Lyn­ham said. “The schematic de­sign stage is near­ing com­ple­tion and the process to de­velop the de­tailed de­sign is ex­pected to be on­go­ing un­til the end of the year.”

Mr Lyn­ham said four more sta­dium work pack­ages were “ei­ther out to ten­der or closed and un­der re­view”.
