Projects in Townsville2020

The proposed projects in Townsville2020 focus on boosting the economy, benefiting the local community and attracting tourism to the region.

Stadium Precinct

The Queensland Country Bank Stadium will be more than just a space for the North Queensland Cowboys. Works are currently underway on Little Fletcher Bridge and the Reid Park Active Transport Bridge and will be completed ahead of the Stadium opening.
Works are due to commence on the Centre of Excellence and Hilton Double Tree Hotel later this year.

Central Park

Townsville City Council commenced improvements to Central Park in late 2019 to ensure Central Park is ready for the opening of the Queensland Country Bank Stadium.

Short-term enhancements to the area will deliver a safe and inviting public space that attracts users year-round by providing more accessible pathways and links to the CBD.

Mount Louisa Open Space Masterplan

The Mount Louisa Open Space Masterplan will transform the area into one of Townsville’s most popular public spaces by allowing locals and visitors to take advantage of its spectacular vistas of our city and coastline. Construction works on the Early Works Plan are due to commence in early 2020 – weather permitting.
