The already established regional sporting complex is under pressure to accommodate the current and future demands of the local, regional and state sporting bodies and participants. Facilities such as change rooms and storage are urgently needed along with specific sport facility improvements. The proposed Kingsway extension will improve all of these aspects for current and future users.
Currently the venue accommodates 1.5 million patrons per year, equating to 4,100 patrons per day. With an expansion of the facilities, this number is set to potentially increase to 6,300 per day by 2036.
How many estimated jobs will the project create?
- Construction phase: 19 FTE
- Ongoing: direct 3 FTE, indirect 10 FTE
